Agreed with Wrose re: education. The problem gets to be when you're one of those kids going to a private school and taught about creationism, but not at all about fossils, carbon dating, dinosaurs (other than they existed when animals were created?), or evolution. I remember singing a song that went something like this, only longer:

"I am not descended from monkeys, though you may be fooled at first glance.
I'm the work of God, my creator! I am not the product of chance.
I did not evolve from a tadpole who got lost and wandered ashore......
But by God's hand, His will and plan, I am, and nothing more."

but I don't remember when or how I learned about evolution, if it happened at all before high school with any accurate, trustworthy detail.
