11 year old boy and father sue Palm Beach school board for not teaching evolution

A Boca Raton man and his young son are suing the boy’s Florida school district for neglecting to teach the theory of evolution because of religious beliefs, WPBF reports.

Bethania Palma Markus, Alternet - Brandon Silver may only be 11, but he joined his attorney dad, Barry Silver, in slapping the Palm Beach County school board. The students are being deprived of learning from it because certain religious people don’t like the story because it contradicts the Bible and we think it is terrible that children shouldn’t learn the truth about where they came from,” Barry Silver told the station. The lawyer said he’d be happy to resolve the lawsuit without litigation if the school board talks to him and fixes the problem.
