The National Center for Science Education (NCSE) is a nonprofit organization working to defend the teaching of evolution against sectarian attack. The group is committed to defending the teaching of evolution in public schools. They hope to prevent the teaching of "scientific creationism" in classrooms. The site contains detailed descriptions of past and ongoing court cases, education outreach projects, and ongoing debate over the validity of evolution, plus numerous essays on the controversy. This is a useful site for instructors looking for information to support the teaching of evolution in public schools.
