National Center for Science Education (NCSE),
NCSE is a US-nationally-recognized clearinghouse for information and advice to keep evolution in the science classroom and "scientific creationism" out. NCSE defends the integrity of science education against ideological interference. This website provides reviews of current anti-evolution activity in the United States and around the world and detailed information on the Creation/Evolution controversy from 1859 to the present. Go to:
! Evolution. The National Center for Science Education is the only national organization devoted to defending the teaching of evolution in public schools. See especially:
