My Stance on the Teaching of Creationism & Evolution

Time and time again this topic has been a political "hot button" for education campaigns.

As it relates to the public school setting, I support the teaching of evolution in science and creationism in a study of world religions or even world history involving different cultures and religions. The public school setting is a diverse community—there are devout Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, pagans, atheists and agnostics. Students, as well as staff, should be educated on and respect the varying belief systems. No one should ever be condemned, embarrassed, or bullied because of what he or she does, or does not, believe in.    I believe all of these belief systems contribute to the study of world history – wars have been fought and cultures have changed.
