The problem is that if such baboomery is adopted in Texas, it will be in all the nation’s text books. Plus, the company that evaluates textbooks is run by an elderly YEC, biblical literalist who has no problem injecting his religious views into his evaluations. If this goes through, Texas will become one fucked up state with respect to education. And all in the name of keeping kids stupid for the sake of a minority deviation from Christianity and Islam.
It will be interesting to see this play out in court. Perhaps this time it will get to an appeals court and establish a national precedent.
Newsflash....the godless liberal NEA has already undermined our public education, and they socialize kids, they don't educate them.
As a matter of fact, before the godless liberal NEA stomped God out of science class, science flourished, as did our schools.
So much material, so little time.
The first being the ASSumption that the education system is not *screwed up* in the first place.
The US is already well behind the rest of the world in science and math and that in spite of the decades long monopoly that the teaching of evolution has enjoyed in the public school system. The deterioration of those subjects cannot be laid at the feet of the creationists. It has coincided directly with the liberal takeover of the public education system and the removal of God from education.
Private Christian schools and homeschools which teach both creation and evolution, consistently outperform public schools at every turn.
There’s simply no precedent for the hysterical fear mongering by the God hating faction over what will become of our education system should Christianity and creation be reintroduced into the public education system.
