Texas Higher Education and Creation Research, Part 24

The Texas Observer blog is reporting that the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) supported the Academic Excellence Committee's recommendation: No science education Master's for the Institute for Creation Research (ICR).

I'm waiting to see more news coverage, but if so, this would spell the end of the main event. But given that several news stories have mentioned that ICR will follow "due process," expect a rematch.

Nature blog The Great Beyond comments briefly about the THECB committee recommendation.

And finally, the Texas Freedom Network had a press release about survey results of Texas university faculty on the ICR issue. Science faculty were against the idea.
