Anti-evolution stickers on schoolbooks removed: David Pescovitz:
In 2002, officials in Georgia's Cobb County school district placed more than 30,000 stickers on textbooks stating: "This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered." Six parents sued the school district and won. In January, a federal judge in Atlanta ruled that the stickers are unconstitutional because they violate the separation between church and state. (Background here.) This week, the stickers are finally being scraped off the books, but the school system has appealed.
Clicky the clicky for more.
I can't believe Cobb County is still the central battleground for this ridiculous, yet important and pivotal, war between Science and the other thing... but props to the stalwart defenders of Darwin down in Georgia. Down with the truthfish!
