  •  Thank goodness for the ACLU! (19+ / 0-)

    As a Science teacher, I taught evolution every year. Our 6th grade curriculum covers most facets of the theory, although it's thinly disguised. I was bold and actually used the "e" word. I have had some negative comments from our fundie community. Last year, I had a parent complain to both my principal and a school board member. The parent wanted me to stop teaching evolution and teach intelligent design instead. I told the principal that I taught science, not religion. The principal was concerned that the parent would take the case to the newspaper, and that would probably not be something I would want. I also told him that if I heard any more about this, that I'd call the ACLU. Case closed. Thank FSM that I had tenure!
