So strained and strange are the dynamics on the Kansas State Board of Education these days that it’s worth noting whenever the 10 members break out of their usual voting blocs, even on an issue as minute as head lice. In the end, the board did nothing this week to change the current regulation requiring that affected children stay home until the lice and their eggs are gone — though it sounds like a good case can be made that it’s unnecessarily strict. Still, it was encouraging to see the board’s division defy ideological lines.
