'design' Of Life May Be Taught As Science

1 post in this topic

Ohio is believed to be the first state to include the words "intelligent design" in its adopted science curriculum, but schools will not be required to teach the idea and students will not be tested on it.

The state board of education voted 18-0 yesterday, with one member absent, to make Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution - that life evolved from natural processes - the only origin of life concept that will be covered by state-mandated tests.

Local school districts will still be allowed to critically analyze that theory and consider alternative concepts such as the intelligent design idea that life may have been designed by a nonspecified power.

But just before the vote, the board specifically added an amendment that states the life science benchmark that will be used to measure student progress "does not mandate the teaching or testing of intelligent design."
