I live in Tennessee and a new law was passed last year making the teaching of creation "legal", and since this is basically the buckle of the bible belt that means evolution is "just a loose theory". While exploring other options I was shocked to find out that all the private schools are religous and to homeschool your children without a barage of financial barriers and other red tape you must be a "church sanctioned" homeschooling agent. Considering all the backwards ideas and "de-evolution" going on around my community I fear for my childs future in these schools. I went to school here and regarless of the constitution they still managed to get away with teachers that promote prayer and ostracize any who disagree. Living below poverty, I am unable to move or to fight the insanity that is east tn education. Any people with similar stories or even from east Tn, that have found a solution, or does everyone like me have to just hope they can "deprogram" their children who will get constantly bombarded with "hellfire" rhetoric for thinking for themselves.
