Columnist Mike Thomas of the Orlando Sentinel writes in today’s paper that evolution is getting quite a bit of support in the draft science standards.
We are moving toward intelligently designed science curriculum in public schools.
And by that I mean we are leaving intelligent design out of classrooms.
By golly, Florida is evolving.
The Department of Education published the new standards on its Web site Friday. You can check them out and even comment on them at etc.usf.edu/flstandards/index.html.
Of 1,400 respondents to date, more than 80 percent support evolution.
Tappen welcomes alternative views. But she says nothing will be deleted from the standards without research-backed arguments backing up the removal.
