State's education board votes to change evolution studies in Texas schools

In a preliminary vote on Wednesday, the Texas State Board of Education voted unanimously to change language that focuses on evolution in the high school biology curriculum.

During the preliminary vote, the board approved changing the language that required students to evaluate evolution and instead will let students examine it.

Supporters say the the change will still allow students to question evolution without spending an extraordinary amount of time on it.

The final vote on the issue is scheduled for Friday, April 21.
