"Alternatives to Evolution" Proposed by School Board Member

The board of the Roseville City School District considered the adoption of local science standards at their June 14 meeting. One board member had been quoted in news reports as supporting changes to allow teaching "intelligent design" as an alternative to evolution in science classes. She had also suggested using some sort of evolution "disclaimer" or allowing students to "opt out" of evolution segments of courses. The board voted 4-1 to adopt the science standards without changes, and without any "opt-out" provision.
