Some Parents of Colorado High School Students Not Happy About Extra Credit Being Offered For Brewery Tour

ARVADA, Colo. — A biology assignment involving beer is creating controversy at a Jefferson County high school.

One teacher at Ralston Valley High School gave 15-year-old biology students an assignment to study the steps of the beer brewing process in an effort to help teach those students about the fermentation process.

The teacher offered extra credit if students toured the Coors Brewery. And that’s what angered some parents.
