A study by academics at the University of York claims creationism should be tackled by science teachers in order to engage their religious pupils.

The study, reported in the Times Educational Supplement, said students with a strong faith were likely to be turned off science because it does not correspond with their own outlook on life. The findings contradict popular opinion, which tends towards the view that religion has no place in lessons about evolution, the TES said.
