Actually, there is.  It's called "reality".  Take anthropology for 
example.  It shows there have been several early humans, why no mention 
of them in the bible?  Why does the bible claim humans came before 
animals, when the opposite is true?  Why does the bible claim the earth 
existed before the sun?  Why is there no evidence for anything before 
King David & Solomon?  What about animals such as kangaroos that have 
never been in the area Noah & his ark supposedly came from?  How did 
they survive the flood?  Why do history and archeology show "The Exodus" 
to be a myth?  There is a heck of a lot of evidence that shows the Bible 
and religious belief to be absolute nonsense.

As for education, you might want to read up on Dover Pennsylvania, where 
a couple of religious zealots tried to hijack the school board to impose 
"Intelligent Design" aka creationism on the schools.  They tried to 
claim it was science.  The only "ideology" is that great delusion known 
as "religion" which people are supposed to accept without question or 
supporting evidence.  In any other area, it would be called delusion.
