According to Brian Alters, who I previously wrote about here, yes it is:
Brian Alters, director of the Evolution Education Research Centre at McGill University, says the problem stems from a general de-emphasizing of evolution in our classrooms – from curriculum that barely mentions it, to teachers who avoid a topic they fear will be controversial with students or parents.
"If you know you are going to get a lot of flak, there are ways to dance around it," says Alters, in Toronto recently to speak on the issue.
Essentially, Alters argues, Creationists have moved from trying to have ID taught in schools to trying to prevent the teaching of Darwinian theory. Interestingly enough, it is not just corn-fed white Christians that are complaining. Some of the Inuit in Nunavik have also argued that Evolution impinges on their native culture.
Sucks to them all, sez I. The point of a public education system is to produce useful citizens, and nothing makes you mentally feeble like a surfeit of religiosity. If you want your kids zealous but brainless, enroll 'em in Jesus Camp.
