Wisconsin school district to allow theories other than evolution

Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - The Grantsburg School District has approved a policy that would allow theories other than evolution to be taught in the classroom.

Wisconsin law mandates that evolution be taught, but school districts are free to create their own curricular standards, which do not have to be consistent with the state's model, said Joe Donovan, a spokesman for the state Department of Public Instruction.

The school board felt state law was too restrictive, said Grantsburg superintendent Joni Burgin.

So when the board examined a new science curriculum, as it does every six years, a line was added calling for "various models/theories" of origin to be incorporated.

Y'know, this topic could have gone in any of three folders; five if you count the two Generals? Is that some kind of record?

"What luck for rulers that men do not think." -- Adolf Hitler (1889 - 1945)

"If only we could impeach on the basis of criminal stupidity, 90% of the Rethuglicans and half of the Democrats would be thrown out of office." ~~ P.Z. Myres

"The default position of human nature is to punch the other guy in the face and take his stuff." ~~ Dude

sigh.....It's the board that needs educating. How can you teach the students when the adults are so ignorant?

I'm sure these guys have no clue evolution is no longer in question. They probably still believe we can't prove adaptation vs evolution.

It just takes so long to move the world brain forward.
