Score one for Darwin
The week's news at a glance.
Conservatives lost control of the Kansas School Board last week, nine months after they imposed statewide testing standards that encouraged science teachers to emphasize alternatives to the theory of evolution. After the election defeat of one conservative board member and the retirement of another, moderates now hold a 64 majority on the board; they are expected to quickly set standards that treat evolution as established, mainstream science. Anti-evolution activists, however, said the battle was far from over. It will continue forever, said John Calvert of the anti-evolutionist Intelligent Design Network. It will never end.
