AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas will no longer require educators to
teach weaknesses of all scientific theories, including evolution.
The requirements were approved Friday by the State Board of
Education in a 13-2 vote adopting new state science curriculum
standards that will be in place for the next decade.
But in a compromise plan, teachers will be required to have
students scrutinze "all sides" of scientific theories, a move
criticized by evolution activists.
The vote capped a week of impassioned debate that had
scientists, teachers and textbook publishers from around the
country focused on Texas.
