Michigan Victory for Science Education

The Detroit News reports that the Michigan State Board of Education unanimously adopted a new statewide science curriculum in which evolution is the only accepted explanation for the human existence, yesterday.

"We want to make sure we're not teaching intelligent design in science classes, because it's not science," Kathleen Strauss, board president told the News.

According to the News, the board deleted the word "may" in at least two sections on evolution that require students be able to explain how:

"The word 'may' clouds the science of evolution after decades of scientific evidence, and is inconsistent with what we know about evolution today," state board member Reginald Turner said in a statement.
