I guess I'm not convinced that the proffered distinction of mandating teaching
about a topic vs not mandating the viewpoint being taught is tenable as a
guideline. But I fear it is probably the best we can do - once we admit that
some accredidation standards are permissible we need to draw testy lines.
It seems the most problematic is evolution. But history and many other topics
(all except, perhaps math) would seem frought with similar problems.
