A Victory for Intelligent Education?

Voters on Tuesday ousted a Pennsylvania local school board that promoted an "intelligent-design" alternative to teaching evolution, and elected a new slate of candidates who promised to remove the concept from science classes. -- from Yahoo! News

Apparently once people find out what their board of education is up to, non-theories (but interesting philosophical arguments) don't do so well. One thing that worries me though is this bit from later in the article:

The challengers also criticized what they called arrogance and secrecy by the incumbent board.

The voters might not be bothered so much by the content of the science classes, as by the fact that those snooty board members never invite the voters to their parties.
