FRANKFORT, Ky. - The Kentucky Board of Education approved a final report on new science standards amidst public opposition and controversy Thursday.

Some people were concerned about teaching students evolution.

Officials also rejected claims that creationism should be included and that climate change should be removed.

The regulation now heads to a review committee.

If approved in the Kentucky General Assembly, the new standards go into effect during the 2014-2015 school year.
