COLUMBUS, Ohio – Evolutionists are angered by a proposed bill in Ohio that would cut the state’s Common Core education requirements, thus allowing for creation/evolution debates in the classroom.
As previously reported, several U.S. states have rejected the nationalized Common Core curriculum due to the standards’ promotion of debatable issues, including evolution and man-made global warming. In many cases, Christian homeschooling families and organizations have led the fight against the controversial standards.
In Ohio, parents and educators alike have expressed displeasure over the recently-adopted Common Core requirements in their state. Robert Coburn, school board president for Garaway schools in Tuscarawas County, Ohio, told state lawmakers earlier this week that the students are “being handcuffed” by the nationalized curriculum.
“The loudest concern from the teachers and administrators was that they feel there is a loss of time for true education through creative, personalized teaching methods,” Coburn explained, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. “They have voiced to me and other board members that they feel the children in their classrooms are being handcuffed by the new rules and regulations.”
