The End of Dover
The Discovery Institute blog has an enlightening post about the relationship of that organization to the trial in Dover, and its relationship to counsel at the Thomas More Law Center. Legislators, school boards and others would be well advised to aim for a policy consistent with theirs, and not the policy of the Dover school board. The states of Ohio and Minnesota have done so, and I am not aware of any legal challenges to these policies:
Discovery Institute's science education policy has been consistent and clear. We strongly believe that teaching about intelligent design is constitutionally permissible, but we think mandatory inclusion of intelligent design in public school curricula is ill-advised. Instead, we recommend that schools require only that the scientific evidence for and against neo-Darwinism be taught, while not infringing on the academic freedom of teachers to present appropriate information about intelligent design if they choose.
The Washington Post has a final article on the close of the Dover trial here, and an article on the upcoming vote in Kansas here.
