UK Government ban

The UK government has confirmed that state funded free schools and academies, including Church academies, are not allowed to present Creationism as a scientifically valid viewpoint. In any lesson.  Furthermore all should present evolution properly.  The government also confirmed that this is part of what it meant by its call for schools to teach british values.  They also recognised that creationism is a minority view in the C of E and the Catholic Churches.

Early coverage here.
