The twenty-two chapter contributions in this book paint a portrait of evolution education across six continents. The range of religions, geography, relationship to evolutionary theory, education systems, and teacher education systems is broad, and yet some consistent issues and opportunities unite evolution education efforts across these diverse regions. This concluding chapter is organized around the six requested elements by directly comparing and contrasting the information presented in each chapter. We conclude this chapter with some general comments about the place of evolution education within the broader discourse of these countries and offer some future directions for the evolution education community.
