According to a BBC article, a new curriculum for 2011 will require the teaching of evolution in primary schools in the UK. This is a fantastic move. Students need to learn the basics of evolution early since childhood is generally the same time that Creationists like to fill children's heads with lies about what evolution is and the "evidence" against it.
Furthermore, by having an early introduction, this means that teachers will be free, at higher levels to actually delve into the functioning of the theory, as well as the evidence for it.
Now if only the US would mandate something like this.
