From Scopes to Dover

From The York Daily Record: "Plaintiffs, science teachers and former school board members all were in the education room at the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center for a standing-room-only discussion comparing the Dover Area School District's legal battle to the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial."

A fascinating glimpse into the immediate aftermath of a divisive campaign to inject intelligent design into the public school curriculum. It will be interesting to follow Dover in the coming months as the new, more moderate school board begins to pick up the shattered pieces left littered on the floor by their right-wing predecessors.
