I love the idea of having a community partner for this project! My community partner is a man by the name of Matt Knight. He is a teacher at Proctor High School. My contact with him is in person. I’m a little skeptical about putting his information over the website here so, if you want to know his contact information, you should ask me in person. 🙂 I interviewed him today. It was great! He had alot of great ideas. The five questions I asked were as follows: 1) Do you think this issue of intelligent design vs. evolution is a problem in the public school? Why? 2) What do you think about academic freedom? Does teaching intelligent design violate it? Does not teaching it? 3)Do you think a compromise is needed for this issue? If so, what would you recommend? 4) What about separation of church and state? Does teaching intelligent design violate that? 5)If the choice was left solely up to you, would you teach intelligent design at your school?
I hope to participate in a survey at his school asking kids what they think of the issue.
