Over the years evolution vs. creationism has been a polemical subject in schools. The debate has been over what element to teach or should we teach both. Some people do not want schools to teach evolution and instead they want them to teach creationism. Teachers and schools know that they must only teach stuff that it is scientific fact. I think that religious beliefs should not be mixed with scientific facts. It is important to teach evolution because if children do not get the scientific concept of evolution they might not fully develop their understanding of science and some of their important factors, which they need as basis and for future inquiry. At the same time, teachers and schools cannot advocate or support creationism. Teachers can only teach what has been proved. Schools are neutral when it comes to religion. Therefore, teachers cannot teach the creationism theory because it is against the law. I do understand that some people want their children to learn about how a god made everything. Schools are not there to enforce people’s believes. Anyone can have their own belief, but we cannot teach it as if it is fact because there are is not actual evidence of these theory, we cannot prove it right or wrong. Also, I do not think that schools are in the position to teach something that it is based on religious believes. However, let’s say that schools and teachers included creationism theory in the curriculum. This could truly have a great impact on children, because we would not let them know the real facts. This is like failing them as teachers, because we are not providing them with the right information for them to have and use as future guidance. They would be lacking very important information that are proven to answer many questions and that can explain without question how the world, universe and everything came to be. If we stop teaching evolution, it would be like taking a really big step back to when we could only wonder and imagine where did all come from. It is crucial that schools teaches evolution. It is not fair for students if they do not, they deserve the right to know the facts. The articles below are just some that I read and found interesting they explain this issue in more detail.
