from the associated press:
revisiting a topic that exposed kansas to nationwide ridicule six years ago, the state board of education approved science standards for public schools tuesday which attempt to cast doubt on the theory of evolution.
the 6-4 vote was a victory for intelligent design advocates who helped draft the standards. (intelligent design holds that the universe is so complex that it must have been created by a higher power.)
supporters of the new standards said they will promote academic freedom.
"it gets rid of a lot of dogma that's being taught in the classroom today," said board member john bacon.
(in othther words: let's get rid of dogma in the classroom by injecting dogma into the classroom.)
