 Florida approves first humanist charter school in US

An application to open the first humanist charter school in the United States was approved yesterday by the Hillsborough County School District in Tampa, Florida. The school will be named "Carl Sagan Academy" in honor of the late Carl Sagan, astronomer and humanist.
Jennifer Hancock, executive director of the Humanists of Florida Association, said that creating a charter school is in concert with the educational objectives of her organization. The HFA is dedicated to encouraging free inquiry, teaching of the scientific method, rational problem-solving and democratic principles.... The Humanists of Florida Association is a statewide association of humanist groups and individuals. The HFA works to foster the progressive philosophy that life – without supernaturalism – affirms the ability and responsibility of humans to lead ethical lives that aspire to the greater good of humanity.

I wonder when the fundies and wingnuts will start protesting....
