Don't Monkey With Science, from SciAm.

Don’t Monkey with Education
May marks the 50th anniversary of the repeal of the infamous “Monkey Law,” which prohibited the teaching of evolution in Tennessee public schools. Adopted in 1925, the law led to the trial of John T. Scopes, a 24-year-old science teacher who was convicted of teaching evolution in his classroom. The verdict was later overturned, but the fight between religious fundamentalism and biological theory continues in American classrooms today.

In honor of the demise of the Monkey Law, we’re offering a of our January 1959 issue with the article, “A Witness for the Scopes Trial.”
