Crackdown Against Creatonism Motion, 26/01/15 [S]

Motion lodged before the Scottish Parliament on 26 January 2015 by Stewart Maxwell (SNP) on Crackdown against Creationism. The full text of the motion reads:

That the Parliament congratulates South Lanarkshire Council on taking decisive action to prevent the teaching of creationism in schools by introducing new guidance; condemns any promotion of creationism in publicly funded schools, including the reported distribution of creationist books at Kirktonholme Primary School; believes that creationism should not be presented as a scientific theory and viable alternative to the established theory of evolution, and supports the Society of Biology and the Scottish Secular Society position in opposing the teaching of creationism in the classroom.
