State Board to Push Ahead Despite Rebuff

The Kansas State Board of Education is expected to adopt revised science standards critical of evolution at its Nov. 8 meeting in Topeka despite being denied the right to use copyrighted material from the National Academy of Science and the National Science Teachers Association.

NSTA President Michael Padilla , in an Oct. 26 letter denying the use of NSTA copyrighted material, appealed to the board to reconsider the revisions they inserted into the standards:
... the standards, as currently written, will result in Kansas students being confused about the scientific process and ill-prepared both for the rigors of higher education and for the increasingly technological and scientific challenges we face as a nation.
