← Biology test omits creation theory, complains Kentucky educator

Much as I'd like to (I have a biology degree), I haven't been able to get a job teaching senior biology (including evolution) in high school in Canada, as those jobs only become available occasionally so there is a lot of competition from qualified applicants.

How I'd love to have the opportunity to teach it in the U.S., particularly down south, where I wouldn't bow to parental/community pressure on the evolution issue. Unfortunately it would mean living in the U.S. (and having to deal with guns, FOX news, lack of health care, Republicans, etc.), probably a salary cut, etc. Perhaps I could get a job touring schools, doing the evolution unit, and moving on to the next school/district/state?
