Many public school biology teachers are not teaching evolution, study finds

The Huffington Post reports:

The majority of public school biology teachers across the country shy away from teaching evolution, keeping instruction to a few short hours, a study has shown.

Research from two Penn State professors reveals American students may be lagging behind in their knowledge of evolution because teachers are unprepared or unwilling to teach it. Some teachers advocate creationism, while others are afraid to address the topic for fear of controversy.
