Indonesia educators outraged at science snub

Teachers reject plan to cut science classes in favor of religion and nationalism.

    Learning about science in school may soon be a thing of the past for primary students in Indonesia.

    The government wants the subject removed so more time can be spent on things like religion and nationalism.

    But teachers say the move is a step backward.
