NYT Predicts Ohio Will Drop ID

Jodi Rudoren of the New York Times reports in this morning's edition that a "majority of members on the Board of Education of Ohio, the first state to single out evolution for 'critical analysis' in science classes more than three years ago, are expected on Tuesday to challenge a model biology lesson plan they consider an excuse to teach the tenets of the disputed theory of intelligent design."

"A reversal in Ohio would be the most significant in a series of developments signaling a sea change across the country against intelligent design — which posits that life is too complex to be explained by evolution alone — since a federal judge's ruling in December that teaching the theory in the public schools of Dover, Pa., was unconstitutional," says the Times.
