Evolution Debate in Schools

The latest changes proposed to Ohio’s school science curriculum would emphasize that evolution is only a theory, and that it is about how life developed over time.

At a board meeting Monday, standards committee co-chairmen Tom McClain and Joe
Roman released the proposal of suggested changes.

The proposal does not include intelligent design, a concept some members of the state board of education's standards committee want added.

It's the idea that life is so complex that it must have been designed by a higher power.

Roman and McClain will ask the 41-member team writing the final draft of the standards to consider the changes at its meeting later this month.
