The Next Battleground?

Less than a week after Florida's Board of Education voted to mandate the teaching of "evolution" in the state's science classrooms, there's concern that Texas could be the site of a new "intelligent design" flareup. Pro-ID candidates will be running against two pro-evolution incumbents in the Texas State Board of Education primary on March 4 (these are the only two seats on the board being contested) and the outcomes of these races could have a huge effect later this year, when the state's science standards are scheduled to be reviewed. —Heather Wax
