South Carolina: Another One Bites the Dust

The South Carolina State Board of Education voted 10-6 yesterday to reject a a proposal by the state Education Oversight Committee to change high school standards on evolution by calling on students to "critically analyze" the theory.

The proposal was a thinly disguised attempt by the Seattle-based Discovery Institute and State Sen. Mike Fair to inject religiously motivated criticisms of evolutionary theory into public school classrooms.

Education Superintendent Inez Tenenbaum, a Democrat, called the effort "a ploy to confuse the issue of evolution so that ultimately evolution won't be taught," according to the Associated Press.
