Texas slips further into the dark ages

Texas approves master of science education program from the Institute for Creation Research.

Yikes.

"Our students are given both sides," said Dr. Nason, who has a doctorate in curriculum and instruction from Texas A&M University. "They need to know both sides, and they can draw their own conclusion."

So, who's better equipped to decide which "side" is really true? A biologist? A someone taught lies by a "creation institute"?

But it also offers a class called "Advanced studies in creationism."

And the course Web page for "Curriculum design in science" gives this scenario: "The school board has asked you to serve on a committee that is examining grades 6-12 science goals. ... Both evolutionist and creationist teachers serve on the curriculum committee. How will you convince them to include creation science as well as evolution in the new scope and sequence?"


Great, so they are trained in lying to the public as well.
