An Open Letter to Kansas Public School District Superintendents

Kansas CItizens for Science offers An Open Letter to Kansas Public School District Superintendents.

It urges them to rely on the science standards written by the science standards committee, not the silliness approved by the Board.

In the Fordham review of state science standards (previously discussed here) a number of criticisms were put forward of the non-creationist standards written after the last battle with creationism. The new standards were a comprehensive revision that made massive progress, progress erased by ideological editing.

It'll be a few months before we can replace the Board of Education, but local school districts don't have to be constrained by their offal.
