learning institutions have to be ordered to even consider all options
Yes, all part of the conspiracy. Why don't they teach about the Flat Earth Theory? Or the Humours Not Germs Theory of disease?

Seems to me that I did learn about that stuff when I was in school, along with alchemy. But I was also taught why it was no longer believed and given the scientific proofs for it. Same can be done here.

I wouldn't mind that at all, as long as they are showing just what kind of 'nuts' the Flat Earthers are.

By not covering creationism in schools, it appears that they can't prove it's wrong. Nobody is expecting creation to be taught as science, but it is going to come up in class anyway. Even if the teachers don't address it, the students probably will. Everyone knows about the controversy and science's best defense would be to have some good answers.
