Candace Maxymowich, 20, has announced that she intends to run for school trustee in the Louis Riel School Division Ward 4 in the upcoming October 22 election.

She wants creationism to be taught in public school science class alongside evolution

 

Should public schools teach creationism alongside evolution in science classes?

Have your say.

 
My position: No. Public schools should not teach creationism alongside evolution in science classes.

There is a role for discussing creationism in religious studies at schools, but it has “no place in science education“, according to the academic and television presenter Prof Alice Roberts.

She says: “Presenting a religious creation story as a scientifically valid theory is nonsense … I don’t have a problem with creationism being discussed in religious education lessons but it has no place in science education … I think creationism has the potential to ruin a scientific education.”
