Yet another poll indicates that Americans believe creation should be included in US public school classrooms.
Channel One, a secular broadcast company that airs a daily program for public schools, asked students, Ã¢â‚¬ËœWhich theory should be taught in your classroom?Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ The choices were creation, evolution, or both. A majority of students (52 percent) said Ã¢â‚¬Ëœboth.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ Another 31 percent said Ã¢â‚¬Ëœcreation,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ and only 17 percent said Ã¢â‚¬Ëœevolution.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
The poll was posted on ChannelOne.com as part of a January 8 story about Rodney LeVake, a Christian teacher who was forced out of his biology classroom in Minnesota simply because he taught evidence against evolution.
A nationwide poll reported in March 2000, for example, found that 79% of Americans believe that creation should be taught in some form in public schoolsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
