Low Impact

Barbara Hollingsworth of The Topeka Capitol Journal reports that the intelligent design inspired science standards approved by right wingers on the Kansas school board had little effect. School districts around the state didn't adopt the standards because they expected the new board to overturn them.

"My sense is the current state standards have had little impact because no one is using them," said Steve Case, chairman of the group originally tasked with writing the standards and a critic of changes later made.

However, Sue Gamble, a critic of the 2005 standards, says the changes may have "emboldened some teachers to challenge their local curriculum and school boards."
