Despite a court-ordered ban on the teaching of creationism in US schools, about one in eight high-school biology teachers still teach it as valid science, a survey reveals. And, although almost all teachers also taught evolution, those with less training in science – and especially evolutionary biology – tend to devote less class time to Darwinian principles.
Science classes must teach the science. For biology that means evolution. Anything less robs students of an education.
Allowing a creationist to teach biology is akin to allowing an atheist to teach divinity studies at a religious school.
