Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Across the union, there has been increased pressure on school districts to water down or eliminate the teaching of evolution.

One state that has been under considerable pressure Kansas where in 1999, the board voted to eliminate any mention of evolution from its curricula standards. While teachers were not barred from teaching evolution, the decision means students are not tested on the subject at all on statewide achievment tests.

The push is now on to implement the new creation science fad of "intelligent design." This has prompted an open letter to the Kansas School Board urging them to consider other "alternative theories" of intelligent design for future curriculum. Give it a read and pass it on.

Thanks to JB for the link to the letter.
