State Sen. Dennis Baxley, who once said controversy about evolution being taught in public schools “will never be over,” wants to make Florida school districts teach “controversial theories” in science subjects in a “balanced” manner.

His bill would give the state’s 67 school districts the power to adopt academic standards as long as they were as rigorous as Florida’s.
