Louisiana schools, one step forward, one back

January 26, 2014

Kudos to the Orleans Parish school board, which rebukes Texas for its attempt to revive a host of revisionist mythology, and bans the teaching of creationism as science. The new policy includes this:

No history textbook shall be approved which has been adjusted in accordance with the State of Texas revisionist guidelines nor shall any science textbook be approved which presents creationism or intelligent design as science or scientific theories.

On the other hand, Sabine Parish schools have been teaching Christianity as part of the curriculum. One can only wonder what they teach in civics? Sued by the ACLU, they are about to be schooled in the US Constitution by the courts.
