Wow, she's rather clueless. But no surprise there. Opinion has no place in science. There is no evidence, thus it is not science. If we want all teaching done by opinion, then some parts of the country would teach the Civil War with sympathy to the CSA, you would have to teach that aliens actively abduct people, that one nationality is superior to the rest, only one kind of music in band class, only one type of art, etc, etc. School is meant to be a place where we equip our children with they tools to best serve them in the future. Real math, real history, real English studies, and real science. School is not supposed to be a place where we give in to every oddball theory so that no one get's there feelings hurt. But if we take a page from her book, we should teach that JFK was killed by the US Govt, the moon landing was fake and that Bush was behind 9-11...

At the end of the video both of them had a wide open shot at her, she totally set the stage... One of them could have said, "So you'd like astrology and alchemy taught? In addition to the creation story from Norse, Greek, Roman, Hindu (etc) history?"
