High School `Creation Club`
Silver City: A high school `Creation Club` is being formed to counter evolution being taught in science classes. Students have been distributing creationist literature on campus. Such clubs are permitted under the Equal Access Act, with certain restrictions, including that the club be entirely directed and made up of students and school staff (`nonschool persons may not direct, conduct, control, or regularly attend activities of student groups`). NCSE members are monitoring the club in Silver City because of the reported involvement of a local preacher, which would be impermissible under the Act.
