Summary

Summary

This landmark case of 1968, found that an Arkansas law banning the teaching of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution was unconstitutional. Until this point in time, Creationism, or the theory that says that God created the Earth and all of its creatures, had been the only theory of human creation that was taught in Arkansas schools. Susan Epperson was a biology teacher who challenged the Arkansas law and won.
