Group Asks for Intelligent Design
By Angela Hatton
Murray, KY – A group calling themselves Citizens for Diverse Education wants Calloway County Schools to teach intelligent design alongside evolution in science classes. The group spoke at last night's school board meeting. Superintendent Steve Hoskins says they requested teachers present all scientific theories. Hoskins says it's legal to teach intelligent design in Kentucky, but many schools choose not to because of uncertainty. He says the school's site-based council plans to research the possibility with the Kentucky Department of Education. Hoskins says whatever they decide, any changes won't come this year. The board meets May 13. Hoskins is not sure yet whether the issue will be on the agenda.
