Video exploring critical thinking and how it leads to great citizen involvement

Reuters reported in its news article published in the Boston Globe on Sep. 24, 2005:

"A new battle over teaching in US schools about man's origins goes to court next week for the first time, pitting Christian conservatives against educators and scientists in a trial viewed as the biggest test of the issue since the late 1980s.

Eleven parents of students at a Pennsylvania high school are suing over the school district's decision to include 'intelligent design' -- an alternative to evolution that involves a God-like creator -- in the curriculum of ninth-grade biology.

The parents and the American Civil Liberties Union say the policy of the Dover Area School District in south-central Pennsylvania violates the constitutional separation of church and state, which forbids teaching religion in public schools...

The Dover school board says it does not teach intelligent design but simply makes students aware of its existence as an alternative to evolution. It denies that intelligent design is 'religion in disguise' and says it is a scientific theory.

The board is represented by the Thomas More Law Center, a Michigan-based nonprofit that says it uses litigation to promote 'the religious freedom of Christians and time-honored family values.'..."
