(As a 17 year old with a decent understanding of politics as well)

So, wait, what stops adults from being too open to mass media? I mean, Obama or a member of congress can come out and say something and the DOW could go up or down hundreds of points simply based on what he says. It could be (and usually is) a mass of crap that is unenforceable or illogical, yet people still believe it just so he can get more votes (such as new legislation that bases teacher salary on testing scores). Not only that, but also looking at the voter turnout in the 2012 election skyrocketed because of president Obama (and we see how that turned out). Teenagers are just as gullible as adults are.

Because the public education system is supposed to create well-rounded education, we must teach all theories behind how we came to be. By not teaching other aspects of the beginning of life, we are selling our students into a closed-minded view of the world. We must also consider that Evolution, like Creationism, is nothing more than a theory held up by scientists. They are both on equal footing in concern with the scientific community. Whether you agree with it or not, it still is a theory. By teaching evolution and creationism side by side (as well as intelligent design and all other life theories), we are allowing students to choose for themselves which they choose to believe, not what we decide to feed them.
