Evolution makes it back into Texas education?
One of our great commenters pointed us to this article about Darwin returning to the Texas curriculum - thanks, houston_teacher!
In short, the standards for the Texas science curriculum would relax requirements about teaching the "flaws" in the theory of evolution. And whatever your opinion is on evolutionism, creationism, intelligent design, etc., it's good to know that someone wants to teach what the word "theory" actually means - it's not a conjecture or a belief, it's a systematically testable model.
There are endless debates about how to teach scientific theories, and of course the evolution-in-schools debate continues. But if you'd like to get more involved, there are great online classes in curriculum design out there for you.
