MN School Board Leader: Why Do We Teach Evolution If “It’s Never Been Proven”? | Hemant Mehta | Friendly Atheist | Patheos

On Monday night, during a meeting of the Brainerd School Board in Minnesota, a science teacher and an administrator overseeing teachers were asked why the district even bothers including evolution in the curriculum.

That question came from the president of the school board.

(Good luck, children. You’re going to need it.)

Board President Sue Kern didn’t get why they were teaching what she claimed was an unproven theory from more than a century ago. (The clip below, taken from the official video of the meeting, doesn’t show the people involved.)
