    Reston, VA- On June 10, 2008, the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT) publicly voiced its opposition to SB 733, the “Louisiana Science Education Act” introduced by State Senator Ben Nevers (D-Bogalusa).  Concerned that this legislation would promote the introduction of non-scientific explanations in science classrooms, the NABT Board of Directors sent a letter to each member of the Louisiana House of Representatives.  NABT is committed to maintaining scientific integrity in Louisiana’s public schools, thus ensuring the best possible biology and life science education for all students.
