  At NBC News' "Education Nation" summit, held at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts April 12-14, moderator Hoda Kotb pressed Gov. Bobby Jindal on a hot topic in Louisiana schools: teaching evolution versus teaching creationism, sometimes referred to as "intelligent design."

  "We want our kids to be exposed to the best facts," Jindal told Kotb. "Let's teach them about the Big Bang Theory; let's teach them about evolution; let's teach them — I've got no problem if a school board, a local school board, says we want to teach our kids about creationism, that people, some people, have these beliefs as well. Let's teach them about 'intelligent design.'"
