Mod's last post is a pretty good. I think creation should be taught in school but not right beside evolution. There are ways to do it even without bringing the religious aspect into such as the cross and the resurrection.
Make it elective or something if kids want to take a class on creation. Also, it could be taught (here in America) as a Biblical/Western culture history class or something like that.
But I think somebody else mentioned it...the class is only as good as the teacher and for the most part, these HS teachers blow. I still remember my sophomore high school biology teacher. Good grief, this guy had no clue, none, nada, about science or evolution or biology, ect. He literally just read from the text book...no discussion, experiments, ect. Just awful. Conversely, in that same school, I had a tremendous English literature teacher who went above and beyond the call of duty.
