Keep religion out of the classroom
To the editor:
In response to a Speak Out comment, here is Valid Theories Part II:
The teacher was right in telling the boy that evolution was only a theory but still a possibility. The teacher was wrong, however, in telling the boy that Christians were wrong. The Christian views on this matter have not been proven one way or the other and, therefore, should not have been dismissed. After all, the teacher did say that evolution had not been proven fact either.
Telling the boy the Christians were wrong also has religious implications that should be kept out of the class and the message conveyed in another manner.
