All I Want for Christmas is a Good Science Education

The science advocacy group Florida Citizens for Science has a creative way to get a pro-science message across to state policymakers (especially the Board of Education) during the run-up to a vote on the proposed new science standards—which mention evolution for the first time in the state's curriculum standards. It's to send holiday greeting cards urging Board of Education members to vote for standards that put evolution firmly in the state's standards. Oh, and don't worry if the cards get there after the 25th.

Since I'm not Christian, I have to pick a different route to make the same point. But that's okay.
