Schools are supposed to be for learning, not story time.
Teaching kids myths, is doing them a disservice. Now granted evolution as much as there is evidence for it, there are still disputes and theories that are pending real world verification.
However there's far more evidence and scientific study into evolution than any creation myth out there.
So in short, leave fairy tales to the church and science to the schools.
I for one would be quite upset that my tax dollars are being used to fund nonsense in the classroom.

If evolution is a belief than is gravity a belief also. The concept of evolution being a belief or a hypothesis just illustrates that one has not really been exposed to the concept enough to understand. Actually calling it a belief represents an ignorance of the scientific method.
When we quit teaching science Anything is possible.
