Getting It Right, This Time

An editorial in The Kansas City Star observes, correctly we think, that Bob Corkins' resignation will make the job of restoring expertise to the state education department’s professional staff easier.

"The newly elected Kansas Board of Education should hire a commissioner experienced in — and positive about — public education," says the Star.

Exactly. Red State Rabble has focused primarily on the battle over intelligent design, but the fact is, Corkins and his enablers on the board have a much more fundamental problem -- they're opposed to public education.

As a state, Kansas has to get past the point where it elects opponents of public education to run the state's schools.

It's kind of like allowing Bobby Knight to set game strategy for the Jayhawks.
