I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought," Bush said.What was that deafening stampede noise I just heard? Every self-respecting science teacher in America making a bolt for the unemployment line. Simply put, science and scientific theory belongs in the science classroom. Pseudo-science that is rooted in religious belief belongs, if anywhere, in a world religions classroom. Particularly in a chapter about creation myths.
"You're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, the answer is yes," the president said.
While I too agree that education should be about exposing people to different schools of thought, it would be a much more credible statment if Bush showed any signs of adhering to this principle himself. His record on abstinence-only education alone reveals that he doesn't have a good grasp of the concept.
