Vote of Approval

The South Carolina Education Board has finally ruled that the newest edition of Kenneth Miller and Joseph Levine's textbook Biology can be used in public school classrooms and is available for public funding. (In South Carolina, the state pays for textbooks once the board has approved them for classroom use.) The board withheld official approval last month after a retired Clemson University botanist, Horace Skipper, raised concerns over how the textbook teaches evolution. —Heather Wax
