← Three Developments in British Education

This kind of back and forth about evolution being taught in schools can also be seen in the USA. It surprises me that there even is a debate over the subject. I had hoped for reason to win over fiction by now.

It has been very difficult to keep creationism at bay in schools in some parts of the country. Further amazement when finding out "third world" countries are more advanced intellectually than the USA by fervently separating church and state from academics. My guess is the oppression and control of the RCC over these people left an indelible mark.

Where as in the USA most of this belief system is a voluntary self generated delusion which people want to include in elementary education. UGH!

I am glad some progress is being made in The UK.
