On this episode of ID The Future we report on the Ouachita Parish School District in Louisiana taking the moderate step of adopting a policy that specifically protects the rights of teachers to teach about evolution objectively. The policy, “Resolution on Teacher Academic Freedom to Teach Scientific Evidence Regarding Controversial Scientific Subject” states in part that “teachers shall be permitted to help students understand, analyze, critique and review in an objective manner the scientific strengths and weaknesses of existing scientific theories pertinent to the course being taught.”

Yet there are those who don’t think teachers should have the right to teach about sceintific evidence regarding controversial scientific subjects.
