The Los Angeles Times story is linked here. A CNN piece on the news today said this was nothing new from President Bush and that he has always advocated exposing students to different theories about the origins of life, including Creationism, since he was Governor of Texas.
When I ran for School Board in 2003, I first shared my views on this issue. I believe in the separation of church and state. I am opposed to the teaching of creationism. Brian Wheeler
