Delaware: Way Too Sensible

Greg Layton writing in the Milford Chronicle, in Central Delaware, notes that while, some members of the Milford School District Board of Education and administration believe in intelligent design, the theory that an intelligent being created the universe, they won't teach it.

"You have to align your curriculum to the (state) standards that are set," said Marvin P. Schelhouse, board president. "That's what we do."

The Delaware Department of Education has identified evolution, the theory that life on Earth - including humans - came to be through a series of random mutations, as something every public school graduate should know, so the district teaches evolution.

"Time is so limited that we teach what the standards require us to teach," said district Superintendent Robert D. Smith III, "and to go beyond that would be unthinkable."
