Across the Pond A Schoolboard Takes a Stand

According to the Argus, The West Sussex County Council has officially taken a stand with regard to whether or not its school teachers can teach creationism:
Councillor Peter Griffiths, cabinet member for education and schools, was asked at a full meeting fo [sic] the council: “What is the policy of the County Council towards teachers in its employment who promote creationism and/or intelligent design rather than Darwin's theory of natural selection?” Coun [sic] Griffiths said: “It is acceptable to answer questions about creationism in science but not promote it.”

While probably of minimal impact here, it is nice to see an educational board stand up and fight.
