Kansas Board Knocks Evolution

Public schools in the US state of Kansas are to be given new science standards that cast doubt on evolution. The Board of Education's vote, expected for months, approved the new language criticising evolution by 6-4. Proponents of the change argue they are trying to expose students to legitimate scientific questions about evolution.

...Teachers have been ordered to tell pupils that Darwin's theory of evolution is unproven, and that the universe is so complex that it may have been created by a higher power.
Meanwhile, in Dover, Pennsylvania, voters rejected the school board members advocating the teaching of Intelligent Design in the public schools.
