ADL Supports Cobb County Settlement

"The real winners here are the students," said Shelley Rose, Interim Southeast Region Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). "Twenty years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court made it clear that any attempt to ban evolution or include creationism in the science curriculum is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion. The stickers should never have been placed in textbooks, and the Board's action only served to divide the community and undermine science education, which is so critical to our children's future success. We hope that this settlement heals the divisions and puts the focus back on science education."
