The British Humanist Association (BHA) has welcomed a new revision of the model funding agreement for Free Schools by the Government in order to preclude ‘the teaching, as an evidence-based view or theory, of any view or theory that is contrary to established scientific and/or historical evidence and explanations.’ This highly significant change has been made in order to ban creationism from being taught in Free Schools, and prevent creationist groups from opening schools. The change follows the BHA coordinating the ‘Teach evolution, not creationism!’ campaign, which called for this precise change.
Does this mean that Religious Education or whatever the subject is now called can no longer be taught in our schools, or is the New Testament ok and just the Old Testament that is banned?
Will I also be penalised by the Humanist thought police if I put my O'level in RE down on my CV?
This is as silly as the Evangelicals in the US trying to ban evolution...haven't we moved beyond the Scopes trial?.
As we say in Wales, "Pawb at y peth y bo," (Each to his own). Let's get a life peeps
