The National Center for Science Education reports that another so-called 'academic freedom' bill has been filed - this time, in Iowa. According to the NCSE, no other anti-evolution legislation has been filed [ed: in Iowa]during the last ten years.
Here's how the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reported it:
Teachers in public schools and postsecondary institutions who objectively present ideas on evolution, creationism, intelligent design or other information "relevant to the full range of scientific views" would be protected from discipline, denial of tenure, termination or other discrimination under HF 183 introduced by Rep.

The bill also requires students be evaluated based on their understanding of course materials and not penalized for subscribing to a particular position of view regarding chemical or biological evolution.
