Curriculum Team to revist Evolution

Evolution should be back in the state’s proposed curriculum by next week – but how much of it remains to be seen.

The teacher team that wrote the biology curriculum wanted the word “evolution” and all of its concepts taught. The team will meet Thursday to revise the draft. If approved by the Board of Education, the reworked draft will be posted for additional public comment.

I hope the teacher team puts back all the standards that Cox had removed. If everything gets put back then the only thing we have to worry about is the Discovery Institute trying to include its erroneous evidence “against” Darwinism/evolution.

The only drawback to this is that it speeds up the timeframe of the petition, which needs to be in the hands of the Board of Education by next week.
