Los Angeles Times reported ,In Tennessee passed a law that prohibits teachers punished for criticizing and accepted scientific concepts, such as the theory of evolution.
The governor of Tennessee, Bill Haslam, has refused to sign a bill allowing the education system to confront the ideas of creationism alongside traditional evolutionary explanation of the origin of life, but has allowed it to become law for all modes.
Haslam said on Tuesday "I do not think this law change the scientific standards taught in our schools or curricula," The law emphasizes that it can not be used to enforce any religious or anti-religious doctrines.
Proponents of the new law believe that it will allow teachers to freely discuss in class the strengths and weaknesses of the conventional doctrine, in particular, views on the origin of man and climate change. In this training program itself will not change.
Opponents of the measures argue that the new law will allow teachers to impose pseudo-views.
Groups like the American Civil Liberties Union and the State Teachers' Union opposed the law, which requires teachers to allow a discussion of alternative theories to evolution, as well as other issues such as global warming. The problem of teaching the theory of evolution in American schools are constantly attracted to himself the public attention.
According to a poll Gallup, conducted in 2010, 40 percent of Americans believe that humans were created by God in its present form. 38 percent believe that man is the result of evolution, but God guided this process. Only 16 percent of Americans believe that God played no role in the process of human evolution.
