Unfortunately, on the same day, the Kansas State Board of Education voted 6-4 to adopt new science standards which are critical of evolution and include "redefinition of science itself so that it is not explicitly limited to natural explanations."
So, if you live in Kansas, the supernatural can now be considered "science!" Call Mulder and Scully!
Acording to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat:
"the vote (is) "the latest in a series of troubling decisions" by the state board.
"If we're going to continue to bring high-tech jobs to Kansas and move our state forward, we need to strengthen science standards, not weaken them," Governor Sebelius said in a statement. "Stronger public schools ought to be the mission of the Board of Education, and it's time they got down to the real business of strengthening Kansas schools."
One step up, one step back.
