Missouri lawmaker wants to make evolution education optional

CASS COUNTY (KCTV) — A lawmaker from Cass County believes the Missouri General Assembly should allow parents to opt out of evolution teaching to their children.

Second-term Rep. Rick Brattin, R-Harrisonville, said his bill is an attempt to address his concern about teaching evolution in a way that is more palatable to lawmakers than his last three unsuccessful efforts. The previous efforts would have mandated *how* schools teach evolution, requiring that it be taught alongside a biblical perspective referred to as intelligent design or creationism. This year’s effort keeps the curriculum as-is and uses the language of “choice.”
