Yes. I recall that a survey of high school biology teachers recently
showed that about 1/3 of them were creationists.
Two well-organized attempts to legislate equal time for creation
"science" in the public schools have gone down in flames, but there
are still some teaching it without a state-level requirement to do so.
(Schools teaching creationism is a topic of concern which is frequently
discussed in _NCSE Reports_. Write to the National Center for Science
Education -- NCSE / P.O. Box 9477 / Berkeley, CA 94709 -- and ask for
a sample issue of the publication.)
