TEA files motion to dismiss Chris Comer lawsuit

Thanks to Stacy over at Colloquy for linking to this tidbit from The Texas Observer.

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has, of course, filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed by Chris Comer, former science director, who was forced out of her job after sending an email regarding a talk being given by Barbara Forrest.

Forrest Wilder raises a good point in saying:

Still, the teaching of evolution is the official policy of the state. If TEA staffers generally, and the science curriculum director in particular, are tasked with administering the state’s policy on science, how can they reasonably be expected to remain “neutral” on evolution? What does that even mean?

  1. How does the director of science get forced out for announcing a science lecture? It’s just unbelieveable to me.
