Arkansas School Board Votes to Remove Evolution Stickers

Joseph Goldstein of the Searcy (Arkansas) Daily Citizen reports that the "Beebe School Board voted Monday to remove stickers describing evolution as a controversial theory from their science textbooks.

"Three members of the five-member school board voted to remove the sticker, said Beebe School Board President Butch Rice. Two members, including Rice, voted to keep the sticker at the front of science textbooks.

"The stickers declare that "any statement about life's origins should be considered as theory, not fact" and suggest "an intelligent designer."The stickers had attracted the attention of the American Civil Liberties Union, which sent a letter in January to the school board requesting the removal of the stickers."
