ABSTRACT
The article reports on the school-board policy implemented by U.S. district judge John E. Jones III in Dover, Pennsylvania that science teachers must inform students of gaps in Charles Darwin's theory of evolution and share other theories, including one known as intelligent design. Jones called intelligent design as nothing less than the progeny of creationism. In introducing the policy, he helped pull U.S. science education back from the brink--and maybe keep the country competitive worldwide over the next decade and beyond.
