The evolution will not be televised...

A new poll of 1200 teachers, conducted by Teachers TV, has found that nearly a third think that creationism and intelligent design should be given the same status in science lessons as evolution. And 90% feel that they should be allowed to discuss the topics if asked by their pupils. They should, of course, not be banned from raising the subjects, and this author, for one, feels it is important that the subjects are raised, so that the teachers concerned can explain to the children how bloody stupid they are! What's next on the curriculum: flat-earth lessons in geography, holocaust denial in history, the comparative anatomies of fairies and unicorns? This is a matter of the highest gravity (or is that just a theory too now). Stick to teaching the scientific facts in science lessons, and leave the fairy tales to social studies (or whatever they're calling RE nowadays).
