High School Band T-Shirts Out Of Tune With Administration, Some Parents' Message

From the Sedalia Democrat:

The Smith-Cotton High School band had to abandon new t-shirts that showed a monkey evolving into a man--you've undoubtedly seen that image. The difference here was that the various iterations of the figures each carried a different brass instrument. The band's program theme was "Brass Evolutions."

Some parents objected, the school administration got involved, and the t-shirts were scrapped. One parent, whose child is in the band said she "didn't think evolution should be association with our school." But another said "Whatever happened to the separation of church and state?...I thought it [the shirt] was funny."

Smith-Cotton High School is a public school. Read more here.
