Sedalia, Missouri, school district recalls evolution-themed band shirts | | Springfield News-Leader

Sedalia school district recalls evolution-themed shirts | | Springfield News-Leader: "Designed with the help of band director Jordan Summers and assistant director Brian Kloppenburg, the light gray shirts feature an image of a monkey progressing through various stages of evolution until eventually becoming a human. Each figure holds a brass instrument that also evolves, illustrating the theme “Brass Evolutions.”

“I was disappointed with the image on the shirt,” said Sherry Melby, a band parent who teaches in the district. “I don’t think evolution should be associated with our school.”"

Perhaps evolution did pass by Sedalia, Missouri, or at least some of its parents.
