Creationism in education - USA

Postby Brian Jordan » Tue May 21, 2013 10:21 am

Creationism and revisionist history threaten to invade our classrooms

Long Guardian article by Zack Kopplin on the creationist shenanegans in Louisiana. Irritatingly headlined as if it were in the UK, hence a high proportion of the comments rapping the Grauniad's knuckles. A lot of posters don't seem to realise we've got it here already but enough do to disabuse them. I haven't read them all but please do read this one: crinklyoldgit 21 May 2013 7:56am

H'mmm, interesting post assuming he's UK based - though it seems to be a case of a rather spineless response from the college 'manager' on the basis of 'customer service' rather than any real academic grounds.
