The Other Side


In an AJC Guest Editorial, Larry Taylor, President of something called “Parents for Truth in Education”, makes the case for including criticism of evolution in science classrooms.

Last year, in public comments before the Cobb County Board of Education, I witnessed firsthand the danger that can come when personal opinions and philosophical or religious prejudices are allowed into the science classroom.I was shocked as Cobb County public school teachers stood at the podium and made the absurd claim that evolution is an absolute proven fact that is no longer disputed by reasonable, educated people.

Further, these teachers went on to denigrate anyone who held an opposing viewpoint as “uneducated,” “illogical,” “radical” and my all time favorite, “right-wing extremists.”

I left that meeting vowing to protect my children from the obvious bias and open hostility that was exhibited by the teachers in attendance.
