This is an issue not only in Georgia, but in other areas as well. The debate has also made the news in Ohio and Kansas, although I find the Cobb County decision to be more general in nature than the debate in Ohio which specifically addresses "Intelligent Design".

The statement made by the school board can be found at:

I'm sure we will see a lot more about this.

Clear Skies !

Red and Nos,

The following link is a forum from the AJC looking for feedback on the school board decision :

http://www.accessatlanta.com/ajc/metro/cobb/opinion/decisionforum.html

From what I can see, the replies are mostly from local folk and seem to be running about 2:1 against the board's decision. (There may have been more posts since I was there.)

The board's vote was unanimous. The school board is elected, so maybe a better indicator of local sentiment would be to see how many members are re-elected in the next election (although I believe not all members run every year).

Clear Skies !

Frank
