This passes for an education?

A money-strapped South Carolina Christian school says it is getting an unexpected financial boost from the controversy over its fourth-grade "science" quiz about dinosaurs and the Bible.

 

Administrators at Blue Ridge Christian Academy, a private K4-12 school in Landrum, S.C., warned parents on March 28 the school might have to close after this school year if it couldn’t raise $200,000 to make next year's budget. The recent "atheist controversy" has resulted in a round of much-needed donations from around the world, sparking hope that the school, which this year had 132 students, may be able to stay open for the 2013-14 school year, officials said.

 

"The assumption that this (creationism) is all we teach or that we don’t also teach opposing viewpoints is erroneous," Baker said.

 

In the press release, she added, "It is unmistakable that our culture greatly needs well-equipped warriors for Christ. Even though the attack on the school was meant to be harmful, God has used it to provide affirmation regarding the importance of our work."

wait so it was real?

 

unbelievable.

 

i think what angers me the most is realizing how five years ago i would have leapt immediately upon a dogmatic pedestal and lectured on why this is perfectly ok, glibly employing the massive fallacy of argument from ignorance, shaking my head with sadness that all these mean atheists are making such a big deal of this because "why does it matter anyway" while in the same breath voicing the need to make sure this sort of stuff is taught in public schools.

So there really is a school that uses a work book from a kids DVD?

And calls their tests "4th Grade Science Quiz" instead of, say, "Chapter 2 quiz"?

I'm not sure "school" is the right word. tbqh this raises an interesting debate re: the extent to which an establishment's right to teaching a religious education supersedes a child's right to an education that makes a bit of objective sense in the real world
