New Hampshire: Texas Gov. Rick Perry told a child questioner today that Texas public schools teach creationism alongside evolution — a statement that state education experts are refuting in varying degrees.
“No, it is not true," said Kathy Miller, president of the Texas Freedom Network. "Texas science standards do not call for teaching creationism in the classroom."
David Bradley, a social conservative member of the State Board of Education, said he hadn't heard the governor's comments. But when asked if Texas schools teach creationism alongside evolution, Bradley responded: "Not specifically."
