Remember John Freshwater, the Creationism-spewing science teacher who branded his students with a cross?
He had been fired (after a long court battle)… but he appealed the decision.
Today, Judge Otho Eyster denied the appeal.
… there is clear and convincing evidence to support the Board of Education’s termination of Freshwater’s contract(s) for good and just cause…
Freshwater can appeal again if he wishes, but this has been a losing battle for him since day one. There’s no reason to think a judge would suddenly rule in his favor.
Here’s hoping his students, wherever they are now, have learned some real science in his absence.
