    CMT is getting in on psychic television? That has to be a sign the network is close to folding. It isn’t country and it isn’t music. Talk amongst yourselves.

    No end of possibility for confusion in that io9 headline re: UK schools.

    Public schools in the UK are actually very expensive private schools. They are free to teach whatever they like. This ruling does not apply to them.
    State schools (equivalent to US public schools) have to follow the National Curriculum so have always taught evolution and not creationism in science. This ruling does not apply to them.
    ‘Academies’ and ‘Free Schools’ are state-funded schools but run to the parents’ agendas. They are largely free to teach whatever they feel like, some are apparently run to ACE ‘standards.’ [http://bit.ly/1yrQbMy] This ruling applies to them. [http://bit.ly/1yrPSBd]
