Indiana School Districts Choose New Science Textbooks

Every school district in Indiana will choose new science textbooks this year. Evolution is part of the state’s academic standards, but local school boards will have to approve textbooks for use in their districts.

Last week, East Allen County Schools adopted new science textbooks by a vote of 6-1, but not without controversy.

“We are a government entity and as such we cannot recognize God in any way possible as a creator of life," said Marvin Hoot who voted against adopting a biology textbook that teaches evolution, "and yet, we have a theory that the government requires us to say is gospel. It has never been proven.”
