No creationism in British schools

The British government has revised the model funding agreement for Free Schools by the Government in order to preclude “the teaching, as an evidence-based view or theory, of any view or theory that is contrary to established scientific and/or historical evidence and explanations.”

This means that free schools that do want to teach creationism instead instead of evolutionary theory cannot get any government funding. The revision was necessary because British creationist organizations intended to found their own free schools based on creationist ideas. This was followed by a campaign by the British Humanist Association followed, which now seems to have proven succesfull.
