Some thoughts:

I think that, for now, this is a much better solution than slanging it out at school boards. It’s hard to make a law that young adults who are interested in a topic mustn’t be allowed to pursue it, though I’d sure advise discretion. For the vulnerable, even showing interest is a scent quickly picked up by trolls (trollus Darwiniensis), and thus curiosity alone can be a damning indictment and career killer.  The average troll is without a trace of curiosity, and genuinely doesn’t understand why the alert young person doesn’t just swallow whatever is shovelled out to him by a corrupted system. He would show no awareness if Darwin’s Tale changed every decade.

Oh wait. Darwin’s Tale  does change every decade, and he doesn’t notice.

Re school boards: I make an exception for the egregious situation in Texas where the local Darwin lobby, apparently the personal circle of a former state governor, are attempting to make the state school system so much their private playground that they don’t want non-ID theories of evolution (self-organizatin theory) taught because they may happen to be confused by some with the writings of our Bill Dembski (who does not buy into such theories). It is simply a civic duty to escort such persons away from influence in the school system.
