Kansas Board Approves Science Standards

The Kansas State Board of Education voted today, as expected, to approve new science standards that criticise evolution. The 6-4 vote clears the way to send the intelligent design friendly standards to the Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning, in Denver for review. Following that review, the board is expected to give final approval to the standards perhaps as early as October.
