ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the debate over the teaching of evolution in public schools in the United States. In 1925, high school teacher John Scopes was found guilty of teaching evolution. In 1987, the Supreme Court ruled that the Creationism Act in Louisiana, which promoted the teaching of creationism in public schools, was unconstitutional. Now, some people are pushing for intelligent design to be taught in public schools. A group of parents in Pennsylvania have sued the school board after it mandated that teachers promote intelligent design. In Kansas, the state's school board voted to adopt science standards that point to gaps in the evolutionary theory.
