← Scientists win place for evolution in primary schools

Excellent news. Some schools, however, have been covering evolution anyway. My wife's primary did a whole term covering the topic to coincide with the Darwin anniversaries. This included a visit from a local natural historian, in character as Charles Darwin, explaining his findings on the Galapagos Islands. Another series of sessions covered discovering a new species on an island with the children making predictions as to how it would be adapted to its environment. By all accounts, a great success.

What next: a push to end compulsory Christian worship in UK Primary Schools? Thought not.
