Debate is heating up across the Sunshine State as a vote on teaching evolution grows near.
The Florida State Board of Education is expected to decide Tuesday whether to mandate the use of the word "evolution" in place of "biological changes over time," in their state-wide science standards.
Critics say the proposal leaves no room for alternative theories, but supporters argue the change is necessary.
Before the final decision is made, one hour of Tuesday's State Board of Education meeting in Tallahassee will be reserved for public input on the proposed science standards.
