There's a closed question about whether teachers should have to teach something that is against their religious convictions.
What about the History teacher who doesn't believe that the Holocaust or the Moon Landing ever happened?
What about the Geology teacher who believes in a literal biblical age of the earth (6000 years)?
What about the Biology teacher who doesn't believe in Evolution?
A teacher of anything that doesn't like the methods used by their school district (phonics vs whole language, spiral vs mastery, etc. etc. etc. and on and on and on)
Should they be allowed to refuse to teach that part of the curriculum?
I think most people who go through college for a teaching credential have a fair idea of what is going to be expected of them once they get employment and if they feel they have a problem with it due to their religion, they should seek employment at a religious school.
