According to a recent survey, almost one-third of teachers in the primary and secondary government-run schools of England and Wales believe creation should be taught as part of science lessons. While 47% don’t think creation should be a part of science lessons, 65% of all teachers “agree that creationism should be at least discussed in schools” in some format.

While most educators do not believe that the science classroom is the place for creation education, they are apparently open to creation being taught in social science or religion courses.

Such findings are encouraging, though polls like these will surely inspire opposition by activists who want to indoctrinate all children in only one view of origins­—evolution.
