It may not matter. These are just resolutions from school boards. The actual state curriculum gurus are going to vote on the new standards (which include evolution) next month (mid-February, IIRC). If the accept the proposed new standards, things will be looking up here in Florida. If they reject the proposal, then things will remain exactly as they are, as far as I am aware. And "exactly as they are" is not particularly good -- Florida received an "F" rating for its science curriculum recently, though from a group whose pedigree I don't entirely recall. The current lack of coverage of evolution was one of the reasons for the "F".
What I find particularly annoying is that the state was apparently prepared to accept the new curriculum, when *parents* started complaining about the teaching of evolution, and may as a result get the whole thing canned. I guess that's what I get for moving to the deep South....

The trouble with being punctual is that people think you have nothing more important to do.
