Still, there’s always Kansas

DOVER, Pa. (AP) - Dover's much-maligned school policy of presenting “intelligent design” as an alternative to evolution was officially relegated to the history books Tuesday night.
On a voice vote, and with no discussion beforehand, the newly elected Dover Area School Board unanimously rescinded the policy. Two weeks earlier, a judge ruled the policy unconstitutional.
“This is it,” new school board president Bernadette Reinking said Tuesday, indicating the vote was final and the case was closed.

Not in Kansas it isn’t. And there are still challenges to the teaching of evolution in around 40 other states or local school districts, all of them backed by wingnuts or extreme-right hate groups.
