At least Kansas is looking for debate about both, while here in GA, evolution is completely give to the teachers to make the choice if they want to
teach it or not.
Now what do you call that?
Bias to the max. Most teachers completely by pass evolution in the classroom, my daughter was in one of those classrooms and I have to take upon
myself to teach her about the Theory of Darwin.
Now it seems very unfair that the theory of creationism is taught by parents, Christian Churches and all around.
But the theory of evolution and the fact that Darwin studies gave more to science than "just evolution" is completely by pass by bias teachers and
bias school boards.
You don't have to change your point of views or become a believer of one or the other one, but I take in consideration that Darwin made other
important contributions to science beside "the hated evolution" like adaptation of plants.
Let the students learn and let them use their brains and decided what they want to believe.
Sometimes I feel that religious groups are afraid that too much "science and historical facts" are going to take away their future contributors and
church supporters and that they will be preaching to empty seats.
Pushing agendas when it comes to education of our children and the quality of education are robbing our children of making choices and using their
intellect to make their own decision after they see two sides of the story on any give situation is nothing more than manipulation.
Let our children think idependantly.
