Why does this need to be taught in the school? Like it or not, creationism is a religious belief and schools are not in the business of teaching religious doctrine. If parents do not want their kids exposed, they can home-school their kids or send them to religious schools.

Evolution is a religious belief. If you want religion out of the classroom, get ALL religions out of the classroom including evolution.
The point really is that a lot of people see Evolution as simply a worldview which is in competition with Christianity. Evolutionary evidence is seen as lacking, and belief in Evolution is seen as largely based on faith, with a zealous belief that evolution is not to be questioned.
And the questions you ask are fairly valid: Why does this need to be taught in the school?
