Creationists have far less influence in New Zealand than they do in the US. Still, quite a large proportion of Christians here do not accept evolutionary science. So, I imagine, their wish to undermine the teaching of evolutionary science sometimes becomes an issue, for some teachers.
Here’s a couple of videos prepared by the US National Center for Science Education (NCSE) which does a great job in the US. They are of a talk given by NCSE programs and policy director Steve Newton to an audience of high school teachers from across the US.
Steve covers questions like:
- What challenges do biology teachers face from creationists?
- How do you respond to students asking the “10 questions”?
- What are the different flavors of creationist belief?
- And other issues.
