I'm not sure what "otherwise" is, but I don't believe creationism should be taught in schools. I believe in the facts that have been uncovered regarding evolution as well as the best guesses that bridge some gaps.
I DO believe there is room to mention or "teach" that there is another theory regarding a higher power having a significant role in the creation of the world we live in.
Personally, I don't believe in Adam and Eve or that the world was created in 7 days. I do believe that god created this world and has influenced this beautiful planet.
I don't subscribe to the elaborate ID that some believe in and refer to.

BTW, I'm often surrounded by educators and I have NEVER once heard any mention of ID or creationism being taught.

I find it interesting that Christians consider Muslims to be lesser people (i.e. uneducated, barbaric. etc.) when Muslims in general believe in evolution over ID.

No religion in my kids public school, unless it's a world religion class in high school that teaches more than just the abrahamic religions... I'd much rather my kids science class to stick with science.
