Gull Lake Revisited
An article in the Detroit News by Kim Kozlowski, "Evolution battle grows in schools" looks at the debate shaping up in Michigan school districts over whether or not to teach intelligent design is well worth reading. It not only covers the Gull Lake case, but also takes a look at the status of other ID and creationist cases around the country. There's also a sidebar that compares the views of various religions on evolution. Here's a sample:
Jeff Conner knew he had to talk to school administrators when he learned his daughter was shown a video in science class that said evolutionary researchers were not scientists, and when she was assigned an essay about her beliefs on evolution and creation.
