A Win for Science Education

Thumbs up to Kansas voters in today's Republican primary, who have defeated a couple of Intelligent Design proponents and thus effectively tilted the balance of the State Board of Education in favor of traditional science standards.

Proponents of Intelligent Design had hoped to use the Kansas model to spread the approach of mixing philosophy and religion into science curriculums in public schools. Let's hope their efforts continue to be frustrated in the public school realm, at least as far as science classrooms go.
