Challenge Everything

According to the Akron Beacon Journal, Ohio school board member Debra Owens Fink believes that her new proposal "isn't a challenge to evolution, but rather is a challenge to everything. Teachers will be encouraged to have debates on all controversial topics."

Board member Martha Wise thinks otherwise, reports the Journal. This is a wedge issue to put so-called intelligent design in the classrooms, she said.

RSR has his own list of controversies that might be debated in Ohio schools. We'd like to see students debate whether Adam and Eve really rode around -- like Fred and Wilma -- on dinosaurs. Or they might engage in some critical thinking about where all that water came from in the great flood -- and where it went afterwards. How about a physics lesson on what would happen if the earth stood still.

The list goes on and on.
