New Orleans Schools Ban Creationism and ‘Revisionist’ History in Rebuke of Texas
The first policy change pertains to the selection of textbooks. “No history textbook shall be approved which has been adjusted in accordance with the State of Texas revisionist guidelines nor shall any science textbook be approved which presents creationism or intelligent design as science or scientific theories,” it reads.
The second policy change prohibits teachers from taking the matter into their own hands. “No teacher of any discipline of science shall teach any aspect of religious faith as science or in a science class,” it reads. “No teacher of any discipline of science shall teach creationism or intelligent design in classes designated as science classes.”
More please. Much, much, much, much, MUCH more public outcry on this issue is needed. I’d love to see something federal since the federal courts have already addressed this issue in Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District.
