Evolution? In a school?

Here's another great story I learned of from PZ.

There's a school in Missouri that had t-shirts printed for the band. Kind of a clever variant on the old "ascent of man" motif, only the evolving figures have band instruments. Inoffensive, if a little busy, and it provides a distinctive look for the members of the band, right?

That's what you think. How dare the school associate itself with the idea of evolution? In fact, the shirt is so offensive that they've decided the kids can't wear the shirts, and even if they like them they have to give them back.

I particularly like this quote from a parent who is also a teacher at the school:

“I was disappointed with the image on the shirt.” Melby said. “I don’t think evolution should be associated with our school.”
