13% of H.S. Biology Teachers should be fired immediately

13% of H.S. Biology Teachers Advocate Creationism in Class | LiveScience:
"The majority of high-school biology teachers don't take a solid stance on evolution with their students, mostly to avoid conflicts, and fewer than 30 percent of teachers take an adamant pro-evolutionary stance on the topic, a new study finds. Also, 13 percent of these teachers advocate creationism in their classrooms."

To me, this is akin to a teacher saying that Ptolemy had it right about planetary motion.
The level of scientific illiteracy that this implies should disqualify someone from teaching science.
