Florida County School Board Members Favor Teaching Intelligent Design

The Lakeland (FL) Ledger reported yesterday that a majority of the Polk County, Florida, School Board is in favor of teaching intelligent design in public schools. Three of the seven board members say they oppose Florida's proposed science standards that include evolution and biological diversity as one of the "big ideas" that are critical for a well-grounded science education. A fourth member says she wants intelligent design taught in addition to evolution.
