Evolution is science. There is no scientific basis for creationism or intelligent design. Teaching them in schools is just a backdoor way to teach religion. State education systems should override local schools when they refuse to evolution or try to team it up with intelligent design to make it seem like they are equally valid alternatives.
I believe that in regards to evolutionism in schools, the states have the right to decide what is taught as a curriculum in their classes. I think that as controversial of a topic as evolutionism is, it should be taught in schools. But like I said, each state's education system should decide.
no, i think that the whole country needs to teach their kids the same so that they will be able to all do all of the same things, and no one state will be behind or ahead of another when it comes to the education its kids are gettng there.
A long time ago we decided that church and state should be separated. Creationism is a faith based curriculum. Evolution is as close to absolute fact as we can prove. Evolution needs to be taught in a science class and anything else needs to be taught in its proper social construct. ie. When learning about all different cultures and all different religions and their types of beliefs. It should never be up to the state to teach "belief" of their choosing
Even within individual states there are diverse enough students, schools, and teachers that it would be wrong to prescribe blanket policies. The ideal situation would have schools desigining their curriculum and deciding what to teach, and perhaps this would occur with teacher input. Frankly, some students and parents support creationism.
