Texas Board of Education Delays Textbook Release

The Texas Board of of Education announced it would be delaying release of a popular biology textbook after some board members raised concerns that its contents conveyed a scientific view of evolution as fact rather than theory.Rather than approve its distribution to elementary school classrooms throughout the state, the board recommended its review by an expert panel who would determine if any corrections were needed. No strangers to controversy, several board members are self described “Darwin skeptics” and creationists. The book will now undergo a thorough vetting by a team selected by the state governor and two senior board members.
