dbo:abstract
  • Zachary "Zack" Sawyer Kopplin (20 de julio de 1993) es un activista político estadounidense, escritor, organizador, académico, e investigador que ha salido en varios programas de televisión. Kopplin ha hecho campaña para mantener los dogmas creacionistas fuera de los colegios públicos y ha estado involucrado en otras causas relacionadas con la separación de iglesia y gobierno. Ha expresado públicamente y defendido su oposición al programa educativo por cupones, porque inadvertidamente permite al estado dar dinero público a colegios que enseñan creacionismo en violación de la Primera Enmienda a la Constitución, varias decisiones de la Corte Suprema (1968 Epperson contra Arkansas, 1987 Edwards contra Aguillard, 1997 Freiler contra Tangipahoa Parish Board of Education), y el famoso caso de 2005 de Kitzmiller contra el Distrito Escolar de Dover. Siendo estudiante de secundaria, organizó una campaña en la que reunió las firmas de setenta y ocho premios Nobel de ciencias contra la Ley de Educiación Científica de Luisiana, una ley escrita para defender a los profesores de colegio que quieran enseñar creacionismo. Su nueva campaña promueve el lanzamiento de un nuevo "Gran Salto Adelante para la Humanidad" mediante nuevas inversiones en ciencia y haciendo hincapié en la enseñanza de ciencas a los estudiantes. Kopplin ha sido entrevistado en el programa de Bill Maher Real Time, siendo el participante más joven en la historia del programa. MSN.com llamó a Kopplin "el Doogie Howser" del activismo político. Kopplin ha aparecido en numerosos medios internacionales como Vogue, Mashable, The New York Times, The Washington Post, io9, Slate, The Huffington Post, Moyers and Company, MSNBC, NPR, TEDx, y Public Radio International. Actualmente, Kopplin es también un columnista para el periódico británico The Guardian. (es)
