It was reported yesterday by Montana Public Radio that freshman Montana Senator Daniel Emrich (R-Great Falls) proposed the ban of teaching Scientific Theory in Montana's schools.

According to MTPR, this Senate Bill No. 235 would limit the science curriculum in all public school in the state of Montana. It was said that he wants to make sure that Montana students are taught scientific facts.

He states in his testimony:

"If we operate on the assumption that a theory is fact, unfortunately, it leads us to asking questions that may be potentially based on false assumptions."


There has been no immediate action on this bill thus far.

These theories are paramount to a continued fortified education for Montana generations for years to come and legislation of this manner would most defiantly set a precedent that would only block advances in education and growth in Montana.
