A US teenager has successfully won a lawsuit against a teacher who described creationism as "superstitious nonsense".
Chad Farnan, a devout Christian studying at California's Capistrano Valley high school, persuaded a judge that his European history teacher, James Corbett, violated the establishment clause of the First Amendment, which courts interpret as banning government employees from promoting, or displaying hostility towards, religion.
Interesting. What would happen to a Canadian teacher who said such things in class? I mean in a real public school, not a religious school funded by the public.
