Yes, people are still worried about evolution education in Florida

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

o_darwinismorintelligentdesignIs teaching evolution still an issue here in Florida? It’s been quite a while since there have been any newsworthy mentions of opposition to evolution here. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t still lurking under the surface, ready to burst out at any time. My evidence? Voting guides issued by various “family” and “values” organizations across the state.

Want to know who supports or opposes the statement “Amend DOE Curriculum Framework for Biology and Life Science to allow the teaching of life by intelligent design” in Walton County, Sumter County, St. Lucie County, Okaloosa County, and Lake County? (All links are to voting guide pdf documents.)

How about “Evolution should be taught as a fact” in Clay County?

I haven’t been able to see how all of these candidates did in their primary elections. If you want to do the research, please report your results in the comments. And if you are aware of any other voter guides that mention evolution of intelligent design, let us know.
