Teachers Refused to Read Intelligent Design Statement

Jennifer Miller, a high school biology teacher testified Thursday in the Dover intelligent design case that she and her colleagues refused to read a statement on "intelligent design" in class because they questioned the concept's scientific validity, according to a report by Martha Raffaele of the Associated Press.

"... the Dover Area School Board's decision to include reference to intelligent design in its biology curriculum, teacher Jennifer Miller testified she didn't see the concept as a viable scientific alternative to the theory of evolution.

"'It would misrepresent the importance of the theory of evolution to our students,' said Miller, one of a group of teachers who presented a memo to the district asking to be excused from reading the statement on intelligent design."
