I need some assistance with these assignment. evolution and public schools Thank you in advance for the help! A number of questions arise as to why teaching evolution is a political, as well as a socially controversial topic. Questions arise why it is fair or not to teach this question of evolution in public schools, as well as whether teaching students this concept of evolution is helpful or harmful to them. .
In the science of biology, evolution is a theoretical framework that accounts for various patterns of differences and similarities amongst various living things on planet earth, and throughout the history of the earth, and across biomes, and habitats that have existed or exist in the history of the earth. DelFattore (33) denotes that evolution is the theory of the emergence of new forms of a variety of life, and it is not a theory of origin as many people mistakenly confuse it. Scholar further goes on to denote that there are a number of hypotheses and models that propose the manner in which life began here on earth, however, scholar denotes that evolution is a theory that begins to explain what happened on earth after life began. One of the major reasons given as to why it is necessary to study evolution in public schools is the notion that evolution is a proven scientific fact. On this basis, Baker (216) denotes that because evolution has been scientifically proven, there is a need for tutors and teachers to teach this in public schools as such.
Gunn (51) goes on to denote that there is a considerable amount of evidence, from biogeography, paleontology, and genetics concerning the validity and reliability of this concept of evolution. On this note, a scholar goes on to denote that because evolution is a theory that does not mean that evolution is not factual. In supporting his assertion .that evolution is a theoretical framework that is factual, DelFattore (39) denotes that the formal definition of the theory under scientific concepts is different from the daily meaning of this term theory. .
