Creationism In US High Schools: 16 Percent Of US Science Teachers Are Creationists The researchers polled a random sample of nearly 2,000 high-school science teachers across the US in 2007. Of the 939 who responded, 2 percent said they did not cover evolution at all, with the majority spending between 3 and 10 classroom hours on the subject. However, a quarter of the teachers also reported spending at least some time teaching about creationism or intelligent design. Of these, 48 percent — about 12.5 percent of the total survey — said they taught it as a "valid, scientific alternative to Darwinian explanations for the origin of species".
