Separation of church and state has long been a hotly debated issue in the United States.
Here’s an example. In the state of Texas, intelligent design (based on religion) is taught along side the theory of evolution (based on science). If some conservative Texas state politicians had their way, evolution would not be allowed to be discussed or taught at all in the public school system.
What are your feelings about religion and education? Should they be kept separate from one another or is it appropriate to combine the two? Should scientific findings drive curriculum or should personal beliefs? If you feel it is okay to combine the two, which religion(s) should be incorporated into public education system? If you believe only a specific religion or set of religions should be selected, why should others’ views be ignored or marginalized?
