Kansas School Board trashes science standards/ attacks public education

The new science standards for Kansas schools are more pieces of the puzzle, of an agenda designed to render public education a dead and useless institution. Recently they put a man in the position of “education commissioner,” Bob Corkins, who was a lobbyist against public funding for education. Since he had no experience for the job, he has tried to hire consultants, at the taxpayer’s expense, to tell him how to do his job. He had no experience holding any other office.
Now they have trashed our science standards and sent Kansas Schools back to the middle ages.
The new standards are highly critical of evolution and clearly favor a religious explanation for the existence of life on earth, as well as denying evolutionary changes. They include many of the arguments of the Intelligent Design school of thought.
Kansas Education Board member Steve Abrams has already said he wants science to include the supernatural rather than just scientific fact.
Next on their agenda is vouchers for faith based schools. They will work with their allies in the legislature for that idea.
This is an embarrassing time to live in Kansas. The present school board seems out to totally destroy public education. The real losers here are the students who won’t have the necessary science skills for the average college or university.

At this point, it would be an insult to the apes to suggest we descended from them. Apes are smarter than the idiots that the fundamentalist Christian right has voted in charge of our education system.
Upset? Who can blame him? He’s smarter than Bob Corkins.
