Evolution To Stay In N.M. Schools

A short AP report says that the NM State Board of Education unanimously approved new standards that include evolution.

The report doesn't discuss the campaign by ID advocates to incorporate the usual ID buzz phrases in the new standards.  One advocate sent around copies of Michael Behe's "Darwin's Black Box" and a letter to schools around New Mexico.  A full page ad appeared shortly before the vote urging people to push for ID-related changes.  ID advocates publicized a Zogby poll which, it turned out, was called "bogus" by Sandia Labs administration, who disclaimed any association with the poll.

Details are available at the New Mexicans for Science and Reason page.
