    Parent meeting this morning, always gets me in reading education stuff. I like this idea, though I doubt many high schools would take the chance, heck most teachers probably wouldn't know how to present it. Personally, I like the "Meet the Press" idea, I think I'll steal it:

    Love the second article, Kathianne! I am a Biblical creationist, but I absolutely believe that kids should be exposed to all theories of origin. This is exactly the point: that children are not taught to think critically in higher education.

    BTW in Ohio, teachers are allowed to teach the controversy. I don't know how many of them actually do...

    Thank you! One of the good things in my private school, we can and do-in the academic areas. Religion is religion-we are supposed to be teaching doctrine of the Church. Funny that private schools are actually more 'progressive' in this area.
