Knowing the wording of the actually question is important. Equal measure'

They should be shot... with new training. :-)

Sacking feels wrong, so all they have to do is prove that ID is a science and they can keep their jobs :-)

I've no problem with teaching ID in the school classroom though, in fact I would encourage it - watch it get ripped to pieces as the nonsense that it is. The science teacher is probably the best placed person to do this (nothing wrong with English or history teachers you understand)

However it should not waste time in the science class (unless it was a lesson on ‘what is science and what is nonsense’)

Maybe lessons on evolution and ID could be done in ‘Sunday school’ or maybe evolution could be 'preached' at the churches.

After all, 'they' want equal time in the teaching; biology will have to catch up.
