Dover Area School Board rescinds intelligent design policy

This was expected given the results of last November's elections, but it's still nice to hear.

From this story

"The Dover school board on Tuesday rescinded its policy of presenting "intelligent design" as an alternative to evolution in high school biology classes, two weeks after a federal judge found the concept was religious and not scientific."

Not to mention the fact that the previous school board was generally less than honest.

FYI. I found out about this from Fark. That site picks up on breaking news REALLY quick.

UPDATE
This story is also covered in the York Daily Record, which provides a lot more detail than the blurb from Fox News. The story is also covered at Pharyngula, and PZ Myers also links to a letter to the editor in the York Daily Record titled "Evolution believers will be damned."
