Mapping Creationism in Schools

Apparently in the USA the state actively funds the teaching of creationism. Slate's Publicly Funded Schools That Are Allowed to Teach Creationism map shows where public schools are receiving tax payers' money for teaching alternatives to the scientific truth.

The map uses three different colored map markers to indicate different types of schools. These are: public schools in states which permit creationist teaching, private schools that accept tax-funded vouchers or scholarships & teach creationism and Responsive Educational Charter schools using a creationist curriculum.

I must sincerely apologize to any creationists visiting Maps Mania for the previous post which links to a map of planet Earth before it actually existed.
