This, frankly, is a front for creationists to oppose the teaching of evolution. Parents, in my opinion, should have NO say in what is taught in the public school system. Students should be taught based on fact not feelings. Students should learn the scientific method, and not how to reject what provable science shows us. In America, we get so caught up on religion and politics that facts get lost in the mix. They become secondary. Allowing this amendment would only further push the self-righteous and arrogant mentality many Americans have, leading our nation straight into an era of ignorance.
