Kentucky: ID Not a Factor

The Kentucky Board of Education is looking for a new education commissioner to replace Gene Wilhoit who left to become executive director of the Council of Chief State School Officers in Washington, D.C.

According to The Cincinnati Post, when the board discusses the search it "won't be discussing the issue of intelligent design, which offers a religious-based explanation for creation rather than evolution."

ID is "a non-issue" in the search for a new commissioner says Judy Gibbons a new board member from Northern Kentucky. "Intelligent design isn't something that's come up before the board since I came on," she said. "That's the way most of the board feels. We have too many other things to do."

Sounds like Kentucky and Kansas have more in common that the first letter of their names.
