Kansas Science Standards: Little Doubt

The Kansas school board will vote tomorrow on science standards and, according to the Associated Press, '[t]here’s little doubt how a vote will come out, given how elections overturned a conservative Republican majority. Language echoing intelligent design advocates’ criticisms of evolution — questioning whether all life had a common origin or whether changes over time in one species can create a new one — should disappear.

"Board Chairman Bill Wagnon, a Topeka Democrat who wants to rewrite the standards, expects a short discussion because, 'Everybody knows where they stand.'”

You can listen in on the public discussion over the standards, scheduled to begin at 10:30 am and to the board's vote, which will probably come late in the day, here.
