The State Board of Education of Texas has struck a blow against the very foundation of education - learning to question or inquire. It has ruled in favor of dropping a requirement that "weaknesses" in the theory of evolution be taught in high school science classes. Bowing to those who are afraid that any doubt cast on the theory might "open the door to teaching of creationism in science classes", the board infers that too much knowledge is dangerous and that teachers should regulate it. I find it insulting to all students.
