Judge Rules Against Dover School Board

Yesterday, U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III struck down the Dover, Pa. school board's decision to require biology students to hear about the concept of Intelligent Design.

He said “We find that the secular purposes claimed by the board amount to a pretext for the board's real purpose, which was to promote religion in the public school classroom, in violation of the Establishment Clause.”

More comments from his 139-page opinion are at: Globe and Mail

The actual text read to grade 9 students is at Dover Pensylvannia School District

UPDATES: The new School Board elected in November decided not to appeal and on January 3, 2006 unanimously voted to rescind the policy.

February 21, 2006 The Dover Area School Board agreed to pay $1 million in court costs
