John Mark Reynolds, of Biola University in La Mirada, CA, suggests that parents
check out the purity of school teaching by inquiring whether the entire faculty
believes in a literal Adam and Eve, by studying the course descriptions
carefully, by examining the student newspaper for discussions on evolution, and
by using an Internet search engine to find and study any papers that school
professors have written about origins.
Roman Catholic schools: Among parochial (called " separate schools " in Canada) schools, there is also little discord. The schools have accepted, and taught evolution and the origin of the species for decades. However, the Church teaches that humanity once consisted of one man and one woman, called Adam and Eve in the Bible, and that specially created human souls for the first parents and all their descendents. In this way, God differentiated humans from the lower animals.
