In 2005 the Kansas state board of education (KSBOE) voted to adopt science standards that require students to learn both the scientific evidence and for and against the theory of evolution. No requirement to learn other theories, just the strengths and weaknesses of the evolutionary model.  Now, it seems that Kansas Citizens for Science (KCFS) is now actively telling schools and teachers to disobey the state-sanctioned standards. 

But trying to hold back open inquiry is like trying to hold back the tide of real science.  Of course, it’s not just the "dummies" in Kansas that are calling for intellectual openness – South Carolina, Mexico, Minnesota and Pennsylvania also have such standards now in place.

If you’d like to do something to help the poor citizens of Kansas defend themselves against the heathen hordes, you can go and sign the petition at standupforscience.com.
