par'don. They,re nimrods. Funny thing is that Einstein believed the origins of man were rooted in a Divine creator. What a dummy.

Do you think that is the only major problem in our education system. The indoctrination carries on in college where the magical words of Jesus reigns over science and or logic. Sadly, in a place of education you can't tell the students to ditch their stupid religious beliefs because that would be "discrimination" and blasphemy.

Borrrrrring argument. Religion didn't dumb Einstein down. He carried on thinking and innovating. Students of today are warped and too lazy to stand up to BS.

Well, Einstein also didn't have the knowledge and scientific info we have now. Besides, believing in a devine creator, whatever that may entail, doesn't necessarily mean you don't believe in evolution and that only dogmatic christianity holds the truth. I'm proof of that.

A "devine creator"? Andy Devine?

Man, this thread is shifting in a hurry. What about education? Kay Bailey has been using it as a cornerstone in her campaign. Anyone other than Perry would be an improvement IMO.

Are you seriously concerned with education over the fact that some don't believe in evolution? Gee.... how did I ever function in the working world since I don't believe that I came from monkeys!

I can think of many more reasons to be concerned with the educational system. Lack of discipline and parental involvement are a good start. And the fact that kids are getting tested out the wazoo!

OK Back2TX, see? Education failed you because evolution doesn't claim that you came from monkeys! LOL. Honestly, I don't care what people want to believe, but I have a daughter who wants a science career, so I'll be damned if I have to pull her from public school and put her in a private school (possibly even a Christian school! The irony!) so that she can get the education in biology she needs in order to make it into the college of her choice.
I agree with you 100% with your other concerns about the educational system.

I think we should teach John Waters and Divine - better coping skills for our kids!
