53% 1201
Yes. Even if the state board’s decision is reversed, Kansas now has a bad reputation that will hurt it in luring bioscience industries to locate here.
19% 447
No. By challenging evolution, the state board is merely encouraging students to be open to other ideas on how we came to be.
14% 327
No. This was a political decision and doesn’t reflect how science is actually being taught in Kansas schools.
