Education not a priority for some school boards

Nov 21, 2005

In early November, the small town of Dover, Pennsylvania voted out eight of their nine school board members. These eight had been responsible for pushing the religious theory of “intelligent design” into biology classes.

This fight in Dover is mirrored in school board actions in other states as well. Pretending to oversee the education of children, religious fanatics, with an anti-science point of view, are trying to push their backward views on all the students.

This time in Dover, a majority of parents decided they didn’t agree. They wanted their children to have scientific education in science class.
