Battle Against Teaching Evolution in Texas

According to this article, there are more creationism proponents on the State Board of Education in Texas than I thought.  An article all evolution proponents and educators, especially those in Texas, need to read.  Go here for the article.  I think this bit sums up the incredible importance of the issue quite nicely:

The decision the state board makes on the science curriculum this November will determine what every public school student in Texas learns about science for the next 10 years. And that’s not all. Because Texas buys more textbooks than every other state except California and publishers would rather not create separate editions for smaller states, the books ordered here will end up in classrooms across the country.
