Censorship attempt in Helena school library

A parent in Helena, Montana, is attempting to have a book about horses removed from her local elementary school library because it devotes two pages to discussing equine evolution. Her complaint "calls for either the removal of the entire book from the school's library or the removal of two pages -- eight and nine -- in the book that describe the evolutionary process." She told the Helena Independent Record that she filed the complaint in order to draw attention to the creationism/evolution controversy, saying, "There's been lots of great scientific research done on creation that needs to be considered." A review committee will consider her complaint.
