← Teaching science in public schools without stepping around religion

As an AP physics teacher in a public school, how can I educate students about using reason, evidence, and wonder about the natural world to govern their lives and make decisions without stepping on the toes of their religious families?

You can't, - so just get on with teaching the honest science of the real world as it is. You may have to deal with religinuts if they choose to object, but the kids are entitled to an honest education.
