Scotland is thought by some as the “birthplace of geology” as it is where James Hutton developed the theory of uniformitarianism. Well, it looks like the Scottish Qualifications Authority is looking to cut geology from the high school curriculum. A high school teacher is launching a campaign to stop this from happening. I heard about this through this Reddit thread: http://www.reddit.com/r/geology/comments/rhokw/help_us_rgeology/
The starter of the thread is inviting people to contribute reasons/arguments as to why cutting high school geology is bad. Feel free to post your thoughts on the reddit thread or here.
