Another victory for science and public schools -- Dover

All eight members up for re-election to the Pennsylvania-base school board that had been sued for introducing the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in biology class were swept out of office yesterday by a slate of challengers who campaigned against the intelligent design policy.

More like a victory for close minds, all the thing was just a 2 minute thing at the beginning of the year, that says not every one belives in evolution. what is so wrong about that? they give 2 minutes to say not every one belives in evolution (which I am one that belives in Creationism) and then the rest of the year to evolution, how is that teaching ID? it not, they only offer if a student wants to learn of ID there is a (read 1) book they can study in their own time (ya right like a HS student will do that) I see not having that 2 minute thing as being close minded.

They don't even say christian in the 2 minute thing, many religions don't belive in evloution, christians are only one religion of the one that don't belive in evolution.
