True, and that's why it's so important that children are taught about different ways to see things, so they can choose for themselves. Teaching religious dogmas instead of science isn't really something, that I can approve of either. But some parents are young Earth creationists, and while I don't agree with them, I understand if they object to evolution being taught in schools. So I don't know what to say. Every child have the right to get a good education, but freedom of religion is important as well.
