Do you think the State Board of Education brings bad publicity to Kansas?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on October 12, 2006
“Yes. I think they do. I’ve had conversations with people from other states, and one of the things they bring up is that we believe in creationism, which isn’t really the case.”
“I would say no, because I haven’t heard anything about it in our news. The issue of teaching evolution verses creationism is not unique to Kansas.”
“Yeah, totally. It’s just horrible. I remember having a biology teacher who transferred here from out of state, and he didn’t really know what to make of it. The way he approached it was quite awkward and hilarious.”
“Well, I guess any publicity is good publicity, but I’d rather it be for something else.”
