16% of US biology teachers are creationists

According to a paper in PLoS Biology by Michael B. Berkman, Julianna Sandell Pacheco, and Eric Plutzer, 16% of US secondary school biology teachers are creationists.

Well, 16% is a high number. Or maybe it’s low, given that more like 48% are creationists among the general public.
