Board Accepts Two Reports on Science Standards

The Kansas State Board of Education, meeting yesterday in Hutchison, accepted two reports on proposed science standards, one from the majority of scientists and educators on the science curriculum committee which describes evolution as a key, unifying concept vital for students to understandand, and another, from the intelligent design minority of the committee, that proposes "teaching the controversy" over evolution.

Board Chairman Steve Abrams of Arkansas City said the board will consider the state's science standards - and evolution - at hearings tentatively scheduled to begin May 5 in Topeka.

Scientists are boycotting those hearings.
