Seriously Sidetracked

Noting that "Kansans have long made education and religious freedom high priorities," an editorial in Sunday's Kansas City Star observes that many Kansans feel the state school board "has gone far astray from these traditional values."

The board, The Star says, has been "seriously sidetracked by religious issues... attracted national and even international ridicule by including criticism of Darwin’s theory of evolution in the science standards that direct school districts in their curriculum choices."

The majority on the state board also has made it more difficult for students to learn about sexually transmitted diseases and how to avoid pregnancy. And the board hired a state superintendent who has been openly hostile to better funding of public schools and friendly to the idea of using public tax dollars for private education.
The Star recommends the following moderate candidates running in contested primary elections to be held August 1.
