Required Readings

Required Readings, 4 August 2013

Religious education doesn’t stand a chance against evidence and scientific education, should creationism be discussed or at least mentioned in schools? This and more in today’s required readings. Good afternoon everyone, enjoy your day, here’s a bit of news which I hope you all will enjoy!

Religious schools aren’t the enemy – I don’t think the writer really gets the difference between Ireland and the USA. And what he says about Obama isn’t really all that bad, is it?

Pa. lawmaker’s education bill reignites creationism debate – as long as teachers are well enough instructed, I’d say bring it on. I don’t think creationism should be banned from school, it should be discussed by all means. If students know what it is and why it isn’t true it’ll be harder for religious zealots to brainwash them.

Christianity in classrooms – survey reveals religious instruction in schools – Christianity’s meddling in New Zealand’s education, seems to be a big issue since the survey was released.

Adherence to religion falling fast – New Zealand follows the world’s trend despite the religious instruction offered, people are willingly opting out of it.
