“Not Just a Theory” lesson makes local TV news

The Heritage Middle School lesson about the scientific meaning of the word theory that stirred up a parent made the local TV news last night. WKMG Channel 6 has the story: Parents: Science lesson inappropriate

A controversial class assignment has forced a Volusia County school to issue an apology.

The lesson has since been pulled from Heritage Middle School. It was called “Not Just a Theory.” The assignment was on scientific standards, differentiating between a scientific theory and scientific lawd. The lesson, however, turned personal for parents because of two lines.

The readers’ comments are pretty much what you would expect.
