Do you care about education in Kansas? Are you tired of the anti-evolutionists on the state board of education letting ideology get in the way of expertise?
Chances are if you're a reader of this blog you're already pretty well informed on the science education issues. There are other important issues, too, so we need to get lots of pro-education people to attend these candidate forums being held across the state during the next few weeks. The candidates need to know, in no uncertain terms, that you and your voting friends care about their stance on other issues as well: How should sex ed be taught? Should the public schools be forced to do the job of the INS when it comes to determining who gets to learn in Kansas? Is lowering the qualifications for teachers a legitimate solution to the teacher shortage?
So get together with a few carloads of friends and choose your venue!
