What ID and Freddy Krueger Have in Common

Via The Columbia Missourian: A little-publicized bill that would allow the teaching of intelligent design in Missouri classrooms is expected to be back before lawmakers in 2007. Rep. Jane Cunningham, R-Chesterfield, chairwoman of the House Elementary and Secondary Education Committee, said the bill’s sponsors used this year’s hearings to generate momentum for the measure. Her committee approved the bill by a 7-6 vote in March, but it never reached the floor of the Missouri Legislature.

"The Missouri Science Education Act would require sixth- through 12th-grade science teachers to engage in 'critical analysis' of evolution as a theory rather than teaching it as an accepted fact," reports Amanda Jacobs.
