Evolution education is a 'must'

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology recently released an article promoting evolution education. What would the FSM say?

About 10 years ago, a friend loaned me several books he obtained from the Institute for Creation Research. Utter rubish, not worthy of debate, really. But I recommend that science teachers read some of their material to become acquainted with the perspective of creationists.

I am glad to be teaching in a district that openly discussed the issue and decided to include evolution as part of the science curriculum. As a teacher, I have the obligation to present scientific facts in the classroom.
