Darwin As the date draws near for the State Board of Education's vote on the proposed new science standards, a growing number of school districts - particularly up north - are voicing their opposition to teaching Darwin's theory of evolution without "alternatives."

If you want to see the full list, plus links to all the various documents, news articles and so on, check out the Florida Citizens for Science post "Those not in favor of good science education, raise your hand." And to think, early on it looked like the standards would sail through the approval process with mostly positive remarks.
