I think that it is retarded not to teach both sides of the issue, saying that some people believe that god influenced evolution, or that god created everything, and then saying yet other people believe in pure evolution is not a conflict of intrest between church and state, as long as the teacher does not try to impose thier personal beliefs on the students. The problem comes in that all teachers try to impose thier beliefs on students to some extent. I think it is unfair to students to not get all sides of an issue or subject and that by keeoping this discussion out of the classroom you are doing a diservice. If the students want to debate the issue that is great as long as the teachers remain facilitators and not inject thier beliefs into the discussion, just ensure that the student discussion doesn't digress into a yelling match.
