The resulting vote by the Board represented a win-lose scenario for scientists. In the win column, Ohio's academic science standards will now, for the first time, include the word "evolution" in them. In the losing column, those same standards will also intelligent design alongside evolution. Even though the standards do not mandate that ID need be taught, opponents of the inclusion are quite adamantly opposed.
As I've posited previously, one theory ("a concept that is not yet verified but that if true would explain certain facts or phenomena") is not necessarily as worthy as another ("a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world; an organized system of accepted knowledge that applies in a variety of circumstances to explain a specific set of phenomena"). Intelligent Design is of the first variety whereas evolution is solidly of the second.
For those looking for texts on evolution I highly suggest Dawkins' The Selfish Gene, The Blind Watchmaker and Climbing Mount Improbable or Dennett's Darwin's Dangerous Idea.
