Will the new science standards affect the makeup of the State Board of Education?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on November 10, 2005
“I sure hope so. I hope that we elect a school board that has some notion of what science is.”
“Yes, definitely. Just like it did in Pennsylvania. I think people want to see evolution taught and not creation science, especially if Kansas is to be held up to national education standards.”
“I think there will be a change. Last time they did this, they were thrown out, and I think the same thing will happen this time. The fight will continue.”
“I think there is a possibility that people will run in response, and I think the people who changed the standards will be surprised at who comes out to oppose them.”
