Science Group Says Florida’s Evolution Debate Ended in February

The evolution debate continues at the Capitol. In February, the Board of Education voted to include the theory of evolution in state science curriculums.

Citizens for Science held a press conference Monday to rally support against the bill. Members of Citizens for Science said the bill would provide a loophole for teachers who want to push religion.

Citizens for Science will hold a discussion panel on Evolution tonight in Tallahassee.
