Students’ point of view on evolution in Texas

The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette has an interesting article on the Texas science standards from someone we don’t hear from all that often: Students. I think it’s particularly interesting to hear the students describing how their teachers respond to the task of discussing evolution.

The problem is that their is still major misunderstandings about what a scientific theory is and it's role in science. I'm always concerned when I hear students talk about creationism being another theory. Well it can't be a scientific theory. And the teacher who said "it's just another theory" I question his science understanding. Just how do you Mr. Teacher test the theory of creationism scientifically?
