MOUNT VERNON — Dr. Patricia Princehouse, lecturer in philosophy and evolutionary biology with Case Western Reserve University, is currently on the stand in the contract termination hearing for John Freshwater.
According to Mount Vernon News reporter Pam Schehl, Princehouse has been giving a detailed analysis of handouts Freshwater has given his students over the years. Some of the topics involved include giraffes, woodpeckers, dragons and dinosaurs.
Princehouse said these worksheets are not serious attempts to teach science and that the source of many of these sheets are from a creationist Web site.
