Kansas School Board Once More Pro-Evolution

by Mary

The results of the school board elections in Kansas yesterday show that perhaps Kansas is returning to the rational world. At least for now. The Kansas school board election was a hotly contested battle over whether the educational standards should allow the teaching of "Intelligent Design."

This article shows that the pro-evolution folk came from both sides of the aisle and, indeed, one of the successful candidates is (gasp) a pro-evolution Republican. However, one should not think that the battle is done, because the irrationalist "evolution skeptics" are still a sizeable component of the school board (4-6) and no one should think that they are going to take their ball and go home just because they lost this battle.

Still, this is definitely good news for those of us who like to live in a fact-based world.
