Documentation of anti-evolution initiatives in Florida is far from complete. Efforts in Columbia County are currently ongoing, and an organization called World Changers of Florida has vowed to pursue getting creationism into public schools. The issue of school vouchers and private schools that teach creationism still lingers. Also, improving or replacing the state's science standards will likely cause uproar again in the future. Because the evolution vs. creationism conflict is in large part a subtext for citizens wanting control over their own and their childrens’ lives, the debate will persist as a vehicle for expressing this goal for many years to come.

Keywords:   science, standards, public school, creationism, Columbia County, science standards, vouchers, World Changers of Florida
