About 80 Floridians reportedly attended last night's public forum in Miramar, Florida, where about 30 of them signed up to speak about the state's proposed new science standards—both for and against them. The new standards call for the teaching of "evolution" (using the word itself for the first time), and the debate over how origins should be taught was as divisive as ever, frustrating many in the scientific and academic community who see evolution as the foundation of modern biology and a term students need to learn. This was the last public meeting before the State Board of Education votes on the standards next month. —Heather Wax
