Jonathan Wells has a very interesting report on the debate before the Ohio Board of Education.  Wells and Stephen Meyer of the Discovery Institute's Center for Renewal of Science and Culture were matched up against Kenneth Miller and Lawrence Krauss.

Other resources of interest in the Ohio situation:

Ohio Citizens for Science, a group for the acceptance of the new science standards as written by the advisory team.

Science Excellence for All Ohioans, a group advocating the inclusion of "intelligent design" in the K12 science curriculum, or at least something singling out evolutionary biology as a subject requiring "teaching the controversy".

Substandard Education for All Ohioans, a parody site poking fun at the antievolution stance of the page just above.

Events from Ohio, a collection of resources at the National Center for Science Education.

In addition, the Cleveland Plain Dealer has conveniently collected its stories on the continuing controversy here.
