I really hope he wins. Its upsetting through that his family has to go through all this trouble, just to make the people at a publicly funded school that is supposed to respect the seperation of church and state, do their job. Bethania Palma Markus reports,

Boca Raton man and his young son are suing the boy’s Florida school district for neglecting to teach the theory of evolution because of religious beliefs, WPBF reports.
Brandon Silver may only be 11, but he joined his attorney dad, Barry Silver, in slapping the Palm Beach County school board with the 18-page suit.
“It’s such a magnificent story and it’s being neglected. The students are being deprived of learning from it because certain religious people don’t like the story because it contradicts the Bible and we think it is terrible that children shouldn’t learn the truth about where they came from,” Barry Silver told the station.
