Submission + - Evolution to be taught to all juniors in the UK (guardian.co.uk)

Novotny writes: Andrew Copson in The Guardian (link below) writes a piece on evolution being included for the first time in the national curriculum for primary (junior) school in the UK. A tremendous victory for science! As noted in the article, this move along with the banning of 'the teaching of creationism and intelligent design in science lessons, should put English schools in the forefront of education about evolution.'

I'm very proud of the UK :)
