The Kansas science curriculum could change again next year after two state school board members who favored teaching alternatives to evolution lost primary elections on 1 August.
The Kansas school board earlier this year had approved by a 6-4 vote a new science curriculum that encouraged students to seek “more adequate explanations of natural phenomena” outside of evolution. However, half of the 10-member board is up for re-election this year. Two of the anti-evolution school board members were defeated in the primary election, including Connie Morris who had described evolution as “an age-old fairy tale” and “a nice bedtime story.”
