School Board Members Oppose Science Textbooks

Two members of the Spring-Ford Area School District Board of School Directors opposed several new science textbooks considered at their May meeting. One member was quoted in news reports as feeling that the books "approach to teaching evolution was too limiting", and that students should be exposed to other theories besides evolution, such as creationism. The board voted 6-2 to acquire the texts which were recommended by the district's science selection committee.
