South Dakota lawmakers are considering a measure that would allow teachers to discuss intelligent design in classrooms.
Intelligent design is the belief that a higher power must have had a hand in creation because life is too complex to have developed through evolution alone.
The Senate Education Committee planned to hear testimony on the bill Thursday. The proposal says schools cannot prevent teachers from providing instruction on intelligent design.
The committee also is discussing a proposal that says a teacher cannot be prohibited from providing instruction on what the bill terms "personhood before birth."
