Ohio changes its mind regarding evolution

The state of Ohio has changed its mind about the teaching of evolution, dropping a rule mandating inclusion of anti-evolution material* in biology classes.

The Ohio Board of Education voted 11-4 Tuesday to discard the rule requiring 10th-grade biology classes to include a critical analysis of evolution, as well as an accompanying model lesson plan, The New York Times reported Wednesday. (*eg Intelligent Design)
