Teaching Darwin's Theory "Critically"

From a recent excellent debate on ID sponsored by the Federalist Society, the Pew Charitble Trust and others, a point from the defendant for ID:

I want to make clear that the Discovery Institute as an organization advocates that people interested in this question (ID vs. Darwinism) – school boards and so forth – adopt a policy of teaching Darwin's theory critically – that is, teaching the evidence for and against Darwin's theory, and not mandating the teaching of intelligent design.

And that's all I ask.

I think mandating pure Darwinian Theory or mandating ID in and of itself is the wrong way to go. Right now, though, the public schools teach Darwin like it is absolute truth. One wonders how they could consider it so absolute when most teachers and administrators oppose anything "absolute" and are subjective about every moral question under the sun.
