Cobb County Evolution Disclaimer Stickers Come Off
Complying with a judge's order, workers in Cobb County have begun removing controversial evolution disclaimer stickers from science textbooks.
By the end of the day Monday, several thousand stickers, which said evolution was a theory and not a fact, had been scraped off. The school district had placed 34,452 stickers on textbooks across the county.
The evolution disclaimers read: "This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered."
