KU Ranking Drops in Wake of Intelligent Design Battle

University of Kansas Provost David Shulenburger says he believes the debate over creationism and intelligent design in the public school curriculum and the resulting decline in the state’s reputation are partly to blame for KU’s recent drop in U.S. News and World Report magazine’s rankings. KU dropped three spots to rank 45th among public universities.

Sophia Maines reports on the reaction in "Within science circles, Kansas square: KU officials say standards debate has harmed state’s reputation, prospects" in the Lawrence Journal-World.
