What's it gonna cost?

If a current school of thought is brought up in social studies as a current thought rather than taught as factual then it's fine as a discussion topic. It shouldn't be presented as "accepted" or glorified in any way. Then students can address it in discussion or debate. The point is that it needs to be introduced at a grade level when the kids have enough experience to fully understand the intent and have enough life experience to understand balance. Failure to do that makes it simple indoctrination of a political stance.
FTR, I do not think creationism should be banned either, even though I believe it has less academic merit than CRT. I would like for classrooms to discuss that merit, despite the fact that I know some creationists could bias some kids.
