Just because there's not science that backs it up doesn't mean that the government should tell schools what they can and cannot teach at those levels, but I do feel that they should be able to say it's not a part of mandatory learning.
Save me the slippery slope argument, but when it comes to schools with public funding, yes I think they can.
And would both not be part of the mandatory learning or just creationism?

Yeah follow suit....
“every young person is entitled to a high quality, broad and balanced education. This includes in biology, where evolution is a central topic and is vital to understanding how human life came to be
High quality? haha....Yeah high quality teaching kids the THEORY of evolution is more "scientific" than creationism....If you are basing it on "science", then don't teach anything about any form of how we all came to be, because there is none!
Science holds no weight to where or how we came to be.....I feel bad for the kids that really want the truth and are now going to be forced into hearing a "theory" that isn't real.....God is real, but if the school system doesn't want kids to learn about God, then they should abandon it all and let them form their own opinion on how we came to be instead of being force-fed a joke theory that is wrong...
Blast away! I believe in God....

Unfortunately, saying you're American and living as one doesn't make it so. Well take all comers though. Make up your own God and join the party. Hey make it you! No one cares, as long as you have skin in the game too!
It doesn't matter. You have killed America already.
Oh hey, you've mentioned your state before. Read your state constitution, you might be VERY surprised. You're beliefs make you unfit to serve as a juror, one of the quintessential American activities.
Seriously, it's your own belief. If you want to believe it is limiting, fine, but it is actually a very empowering belief if you're doing it right, whether you choose allah, yahweh, the sun, your dog, the flying spaghetti monster, whatever. You choose how to believe.
