New Jersey Gov. Christie: Let schools teach creationism

Published

on

New Jersey Gov. Christie (R) dodged questions over the teaching of creationism in schools at a press conference Thursday morning, claiming that school districts should be able to decide for themselves.

“Evolution is required teaching,” Christie said. “If there’s a certain school district that also wants to teach creationism, that’s not something we should decide in Trenton.”

When asked if he believed in creationism or the theory of evolution, Christie responded, “that’s none of your business.”

The governor was also asked about the teaching of creationism at a town hall event in Manalapan on Wednesday.

“I think it’s really a dangerous area for a governor who stands up from the top of the state to say you should teach this, you shouldn’t teach that,” Christie said.

New Jersey Department of Education spokesman Alan Guenther told NJ.com that the state would not permit the teaching of creationism in place of evolution, but that it could still be discussed in a science or history class.
