Wichita Eagle: Time to Clean House

"It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry about the doings of the Kansas State Board of Education," says an editorial published yesterday in The Wichita Eagle:
A faction of far-right conservatives has turned the state board into its own ideological hobbyhorse, drawing widespread condemnation from the academic community, not to mention international ridicule.

Enough. It's time for voters to clean house in upcoming board races.

The Eagle finds it "encouraging that a strong field of well-qualified challengers is running, both in the Aug. 1 primary and the Nov. 7 general election," but they note, "[t]hese will be tough races, because the Intelligent Design Network and religious right groups are pouring money and misinformation into these campaigns."
