His Royal Highness the Honorable King of LandThieves Esq. III
I would say, in general, there was a huge difference in the students that graduated from the elite local catholic school and our schools. We kicked any bad apples out while at the catholic school they would have them meet with the priest and confess, and often keep them in school along with their destructive ways. It was also where most of the wealthy people put their kids.
If paying tuition is a financial hardship, I guarantee you that parents stay invested in their kids education. As far as the science goes, much of the evolutionary stuff my dad learned changed by the time I was in school and its changed even more that my kids are in school. Things that were supposed facts then are less so now. Most of the counter points to intelligent design are that a lot of stuff just was floating around and a series of improbable events just happened to come together and produce life and that life evolved into humans. To get around the total impossibility they just throw a shitload of time at it and say it happened over millions or billions of years.
Since nobody was around during that time, it's all theory anyway.
