To a Degree?

A Texas advisory council of university educators has recommended that the state grant accreditation to the Institute for Creation Research, which offers an online master's degree program for science education that trains science teachers using a "biblical framework." The ICR, which specializes in "the study and promotion of scientific creationism, biblical creationism, and related fields," had been offering graduate courses in California since 1981, but the institute's recent move to Texas required it to reapply for accreditation. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board will likely consider the controversial application in January. —Dan Messier
