Is it possible that out of a group of 50 7th and 8th graders not one knew who Charles Darwin was!? Near my hometown it is!!!
Is it possible that schools have elimnated Darwin from the curriculum or is it not gotten to until 9th grade?
In case one of these students stumbles upon this post….
From Wikipedia: Charles Robert Darwin (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist who achieved lasting fame by producing considerable evidence that species originated through evolutionary change, at the same time proposing the scientific theory that natural selection is the mechanism by which such change occurs. This theory is now considered a cornerstone of biology.
