My 7 year old came home from school today and said that he learned about how God created the world in 7 days. I thought that teaching this stuff in public schools was illegal? Shouldnt this teacher be fired??

Why are you afraid of your child receiving information. Isn't that what you send him to school for?
Having said that, there is no law against talking about God in class, just as they are allowed to talk about Mohammad, Buddha, etc.
What they cannot do is force students to act in a particular way, such as organized prayer, and they cannot say "religion A is the correct one" unless, of course, it is a religious school.
You, like most Americans, have no idea of what the 1st Amendment religion clause says or means. It says that the government cannot establish a national religion and the government cannot forbid the free exercise of any religion. It doesn't mean that governmental agency personnel cannot talk about religion.
Relax. The more information a person has, the better can that person make a decision.

Hereís a thought. Why donít you contact your childís teacher and ask about this. He/she might have a good explanation that will set your mind at ease. If, after hearing their explanation you still have problems you can contact the principal or district administrators and voice your concerns. If that isnít enough, there is a school board meeting tonight and you have the opportunity at the beginning of the meeting to address the board. This seems to make more sense than complaining on Topix and getting your panties in a bunch.
