Good News on South Carolina Education

I wrote previously that the South Carolina Board of Education was reviewing a couple of science texts because of objections raised by fundamentalist Christians.  Now it looks like we can count this one as a win for science eduaction:

Today, in a stunning reversal of votes, the State Board of Education approved the Miller/Levine Biology Textbook that was under scrutiny. The vote went from 9-7 (vote in December) in favor of dropping the Miller/Levine textbook to 10-6 in favor of keeping the textbook on the list.

Hurrah for not giving in to the fundies!!
