American teachers display courage on evolution


Click Here

Opinion reads: Some teach evolution as if it applies only to molecular biology and therefore avoid the whole question of whether species give rise to other species. Others—especially in school districts with many religious fundamentalists—tell students that although they need to understand evolution to pass standardized tests, they don’t have to “believe” in it. Still other teachers expose students to a wide variety of religious and nonreligious positions on evolution and tell them to make up their own minds.
