During a recent mayoral candidate debate, Chris Romer forced Michael Hancock to stumble through a confused admission (and later retraction) for allowing the teaching of creation science and/or intelligent design in public-school classrooms. Perhaps looking at a few DPS Creation Science Fair projects will help the pro-education-reform candidates see the pros (and cons) of teaching intelligent design in Denver Public Schools... Lowering the budget: Denver Public Schools wouldn't have to spend so much money trying to find adequate science teachers and textbooks when local churches would provide creation-science instruction and material for free. Below, how these lower costs will increase science proficiency scores... Raising test scores: Science proficiency scores on CSAP tests would jump from 5% to 95%, as there are fewer wrong answers to creation science questions when there is only one correct answer.
