Creationism is, thankfully, not as big an issue in the UK as it is in the States.
But we shouldn't get complacent. As the BHA have recently posted:
Creationist groups are continuing to push for Free Schools
Free Schools don't have to teach the National Curriculum, and there are groups that are trying to set up schools, such that they can teach their anti-science dogma in science lessons.
Please sign this e-petition "Teach evolution, not creationism"
This has always been an important issue for me, but more so as I embark on a career in science education.
