← Dr Adam Rutherford criticises teachers' views on creationism

Ramases's Avatar Jump to comment 26 by Ramases

I am a bit sceptical of the veracity of the findings of this survey.

I don't know the situation in the UK as well, but here in Australia I was a teacher for many years myself, and every science teacher I knew had absolute contempt for creationism. Most science teachers are very responsible in this regard.

On the other hand, the UK allows the employment of unqualified teachers, something that Australia does not, and this could effect the number of "nutters" who get into the system as well as the quality of overall teaching.
