I agree with the reason you just put down for not teaching creation
theory (at least outside of a religion class).

However, if I remember my American History correctly, the point of
separating church and state was not at all what people misinterpret it
as now:  the founding fathers of the U.S. were all Christian and the
U.S. was clearly set up along Christian principles.  They just wanted to
level the playing field for all denominations of Christians.  This has
since grown into equal status for all religions, which is fair enough,
but people often seem to paint some sort of anti-religious bias into it
which seems to me to be just historically wrong.
