This Friday, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal seemed to endorse the idea of teaching creationism in public schools.
In an interview on NBC News, Jindal said that teaching creationism in public schools would not interfere with students being taught “the best science” in general.
“We have what’s called the Science Education Act that says that if a teacher wants to supplement those materials, if the school board is okay with that, if the state school board is okay with that, they can supplement those materials,” Jindal said.
“Bottom line, at the end of the day, we want our kids to be exposed to the best facts. Let’s teach them about the big bang theory, let’s teach them about evolution, let’s teach them — I’ve got no problem if a school board, a local school board, says we want to teach our kids about creationism, that people, some people, have these beliefs as well, let’s teach them about intelligent design.”
