New York City Schools

According to an August 19, 2000, article in The New York Times, National Heritage Academies, Inc, is among the organizations that have submitted bids to operate schools in New York City under a privatization program. But NCSE has learned that National Heritage Academies is not under consideration for the program. Meanwhile, activists report that founders of a National Heritage Academies school in Rochester, New York, who were reported as intending “to teach students about creationism as a scientifically based theory competing with the theory of evolution” (see The New York Times, February 18, 2000), have agreed not to teach creationism.
