As expected, the Kansas State Board of Education ignored the recommendations of its science standards committee and the overwhelming opinion of the world’s scientists and voted this afternoon to include criticisms of evolution in the state’s science standards and to change the definition of science to allow for supernatural explanations. Fortunately, state tests won’t reflect these junk standards for another two years, so there is still time to elect an new board majority next year whose members will put academic integrity and our state’s education reputation before their own religious ideologies.
