School boards in 12 Florida counties have passed resolutions opposing teaching evolution as a fact. Apparently the school boards are using some type of template provided by ID proponents. You can find more information on the Florida Citizens for Science web site here and here.

Whereas, the Florida Department of Education has drafted and is now proposing new Sunshine State Standards for Science, the Taylor County School Board opposes the implementation of the new standards as currently presented.
Whereas, the new Sunshine State Standards for Science no longer present evolution as theory but as “the fundamental concept underlying all of biology and is supported in multiple forms of scientific evidence,” we are requesting that the State Board of Education direct the Florida Department of Education to revise/edit the new Sunshine State Standards for Science so that evolution is presented as one of several theories as to how the universe was formed.

These people obviously have no understanding of science.
