Institute for Creatation Research sues over denial of Masters program

Come on, you can't sue because you don't get a Science Masters Program, if you don't teach science....

The Institute for Creation Research has taken its fight to train future science teachers to the courthouse.

The Dallas-based creationist group alleges that its civil rights were violated by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Last year, the state agency denied the institute permission to offer a masterís degree in science education, saying the program did not meet state academic standards.

The lawsuit, filed last week in U.S. District Court, alleges that the coordinating board discriminated against the institute because of its views on evolution.

Raymund Paredes, the stateís higher education commissioner, has said that the proposed masterís program would not prepare future educators to teach science standards in Texas public school classrooms.

Institute leaders have said they would teach both the creationist and evolutionist views, but that their group favors the former.
