More on Jesse Hall
Hall, an employee with the Kansas City, Mo., school district, said he didn’t know what all the fuss was about.…He also doesn't have a beef with Bob Corkins, or much else that the conservative Republicans on the Board have done. Janet Waugh has been a reliable support of good science education and good schools. Don't let dirty tricks take her off the Board.
He said he supported the science standards adopted by the 6-4 majority that criticize evolution.
“The way it was set up, evolution was the only thing that could be taught. That doesn’t allow a child to step outside the box so that they themselves learn how to think,” Hall said.
Opponents of the new science standards say they bring intelligent design — the theory that a master designer formed life — into science class.
Hall also supports changes to sex education put in place by the board’s 6-4 majority.
