School Board Watch The good folks in Blount County, Tennessee have voted to reject three biology textbooks on the grounds that they discuss evolution but not creationism. The board voted 2-1, with four board members abstaining. Talk about your profiles in courage.
In this article from the Daily News of Maryville, TN, it is pointed out that the three books in question had been chosen by the biology teachers of the local high schools. In a typical bit of school board arrogance, the board substituted their judgment for that of the teachers.
