First, any religious doctrine in the classroom doesn't fly, by the First Amendment. I'm not looking to change that.

How do you read that? Schools in many places are teaching creationism right now. I'm looking to change that.

What I want is for states or countries to act as testing grounds for new ways of educating kids.

So, let's say a state decided to test out the idea of just letting kids read the bible all day long. You're cool with that? Sounds great for the country.

Once we have enough data to strongly show that one method is decisively better than another, we enforce that on the states.

?So it's just a temporary measure? I'm very confused.
