"Until or unless the Science/Faith problem is properly tackled at a higher level (i.e. Government & University), the likelihood is that present curriculum constraints will substantially apply for the foreseeable future. Teachers must therefore do all that they can to ensure that pupils, parents and fellow colleagues are reminded frequently that all is not what it seems when popular so-called scientific dogma presents itself before them."
