I don’t understand the shock that is expressed when homeschoolers teach that God created the earth. It would be one thing if public schools offered a perfectly fair and balanced view of science, but as it is a public school education will teach you that evolution is the only acceptable explanation for our existence. So why is it suddenly outrageous that homeschoolers teach creationism? I recognize that the criticism for all things homeschool won’t go away for a while, if ever, but the continued misrepresentation of the facts and the double standards are completely unacceptable and should disturb even those who don’t homeschool.
I don't think the problem is that parents are teaching their children that God created the earth, the problem is they are teaching it as Science. Creationism/Intelligent Design DOES NOT stand up to the scientific method, and has no place in a science classroom. Although IF Fundamentalist want to teach it to their kids I support their right to do so.
I don't support Fundamentalist acting like they are the only homeschoolers. There are plenty of homeschoolers that TEACH EVOLUTION! My ire is raised when Elijah Friedeman and others lump all homeschoolers together as anti-science buffons.
FYI: HOMESCHOOLERS TEACH EVOLUTION!!!!!!!
