Scientists were concerned that children in England's free schools-- taxpayer-funded schools that aren't run by local authorities--might not learn about evolution in schools run by creationists. To ensure that students get a more balanced education, the government has instituted rules stating that evolution must be taught as "comprehensive and coherent scientific theory." Schools that don't follow the rules could lose their funding.
