Associated Press Corrects South Carolina Evolution Story
The Associated Press has corrected the lead paragraph of its story on biology standards adopted yesterday in South Carolina. As Casey Luskin reported last night, the AP's original story erroneously stated that the new South Carolina standards do not require the critical analysis of evolution. But as of early this morning, the new AP story clearly states that the South Carolina standards do require critical analysis of evolution:
COLUMBIA, S.C. - The state Education Oversight Committee approved high school biology standards Monday that require students to "critically analyze aspects of evolutionary theory." (emphasis added)
Kudos to the AP for correcting its earlier inaccurate report.
