New Mexico's New Science Standards (Adopted Aug. 28, 2003)

Letter from Richard Reif to Marshall Berman regarding attempts of local "Intelligent Design" advocates to persuade teachers that the new standards allow teaching of "alternate theories of origin." (PDF). "In no way do the science standards support the teaching of notions of intelligent design or creation science or any of its variations."

Quote from State Board of Education member Flora Sanchez , made during the hearing on the adoption of the standards (August 28, 2003). As reported by Diana Heil of the Santa Fe New Mexican on August 29, 2003,"Board member Flora Sanchez put a stop to mixed messages, though. She clarified this point: The state is not asking teachers to present all the alternatives to evolution and 'put them on an equal footing.'..."
