North Carolina Science Lesson: It's God Not Evolution

A student at Sunnyside Elementary School in Cumberland County, North Carolina said her fifth-grade teacher said certain animals can camouflage themselves because of God, not evolution.

The student's parents believe the teacher violated the separation between church and state. They sued in federal court and won.

School officials agreed with the judge. They said the teacher ignored the curriculum.

School officials will not say whether they disciplined the teacher. They call it a personnel issue, which is not public record.

Reported by WRAL in Fayetville, N.C.
