New Mexico restores science education standards

The state of New Mexico announced that it would restore classroom references to evolution, human-caused climate change and the 4.6-billion-year age of the Earth. The information, all part of mainstream scientific consensus, had been stripped from the state's draft science education standards released last month. They were restored after a public outcry.

It's nice to see that the reveral is attributed to "public outcry" rather than something like "pressure from activists".
