Saucon Valley: Eichfeld decries science text

Thursday, July 24, 2014 by MARK RECCECK in Local News

Saucon Valley School District school board member Bryan Eichfeld considers a chapter of a high school environmental science textbook on global warming "propaganda."

At the board's June 24 meeting, Eichfeld urged the board to replace the textbook with what he called "true science."

"There's a lot of clear propaganda in this chapter," he told board members.

Eichfeld took issue with how the book presents global warming. According to him, the book presents the topic of global warming by offering political propaganda rather than science and fact.
