They're going to still teach evolution but the word "evolution" will be removed from their science text books. Seems like it's an effort to get the local religious wackos off the backs of the teachers.

Same thing in MO -- "Intelligent Design" theory to be taughtDale Brigham

A bill has been introduced into the Missouri legislature that would, if passed, mandate the teaching of Intelligent Design Theory in biology classes in public schools. Since it appears that Darwinian Evolution stalled out long ago here in the Meth-Lab State (our new stare motto), I suppose anything that pushes intelligence over stupidity is to be applauded.

teaching a scientifically valid theory just calling it by another name, as opposed to pawning off a religious based idea as science, which are two entirely different things.
