probable changes in kansas science curricula
With the change in the composition of the Kansas State Board of Education towards more moderate and liberal members, some of the earlier curriculum standards are being reversed. These earlier standards generated much controversy--and were opposed by the National Academy of Sciences and the National Science Teachers Association--by including a series of criticisms of evolution into the standard science curricula. Anyway, it looks like the board members are going to take up the science curriculum standards again in February, with an eye towards changing them.
