Just Do It!

Yesterday, at its first meeting of 2007, the Kansas school board, now under new (moderate) management, voted to revisit the science standards issue.

At their next meeting, in February, the board is expected to rescind the intelligent design inspired standards voted in by Christian fundamentalists who formerly held a majority on the board. Standards developed by professional scientists and educators and approved by the majority of the science standards committee are expected to be adopted in their stead.

Former board chair Steve Abrams, who spearheaded efforts to include creationism and intelligent design in 1999 and 2005 offered this advice to the newly elected moderate majority:

"You got the votes, so do it."

We couldn't agree more.
