Stories about experiences with co-ops and not being YEC

I’d like to write an article about the different responses homeschooling parents have gotten from Christian co-ops if/when they say they are not YEC. Do you have a personal story you could share? (I know there are some in past threads that I need to go dig up.)

I’m particularly interested in cases where people were asked to sign YEC faith statements in order to participate, or the experiences of teachers or students in co-op science classes when topics like age of the earth or evolution come up. Has there been room for a diversity of views in your community or have the YEC boundaries been policed pretty strictly? Do you think there has been a noticeable shift or perhaps more openness compared to ten years ago?
