Evolution in the Classroom

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Tensions over how evolution is taught in public schools are simmering at the State Board of Education.

The board on Wednesday began taking public testimony in Austin for the last time before an expected vote later this week on proposed classroom science curriculum standards.

The proposal being considered would drop a 20-year-old rule that requires both "strengths and weaknesses" of all scientific theories be taught.

Critics say the requirement is used to undermine the theory of evolution in favor of religious teachings.
