US Education Secretary: No position on Evolution in Science Standards

On, Gary Fineout reports:

U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings … stayed as far away as she could from the unfolding controversy over whether the word “evolution” should be included in Florida’s science standards for schools. The State Board of Education is expected to vote on the new science standards next month.

Spellings said it wasn’t her job to make policy decisions like that and said it was up to people such as new Florida Education Commissioner Eric Smith. And when asked whether the nation’s top education official has a position on whether evolution should be a part of science standards, Spellings replied: “No, I don’t.”
