A sensible decision from Michael Gove.
The proposed free school which was to be founded on strict biblical literalism, but the school proposers did graciously agree to teach evolution in science ‘as a theory’. Their application for permission to open a free school will not be taken forward.
My concern was that the school would not teach evolution well at all and it would be undermined at each and every point. The integrity of its science teaching would be cast into doubt given that their own characterisation of evolution clearly shows that they do not understand How Science Works.
I will be interested in the reasons provided for not progressing this free school application.
