School Board Rejects, Then Accepts, Science Textbooks

In April the Brodhead School District board voted not to adopt two sets of elementary and middle school science books which had been recommended by district staff after a year of review. According to press reports, some board members "expressed concern on how evolution was presented in the books, more as fact than theory".

At its May meeting, the board decided to accept the textbooks, after having had a chance to review them in the meantime. No further comments about evolution were reported.
