KS Tapped for National Science Standards Panel

Six years ago, the state of Kansas was widely derided because of a debate at the state board of education over teaching the theory of evolution in public school science classes. But now, the state is joining 19 others to develop new national science education standards. They're aimed at bringing U-S students up to par with students in other industrialized nations. Dana Tofig (DAY-nah TOE-figg) is a spokesperson for the non-profit education organization developing the new standards. He (cq) says there will be no discussion of creationism in the new science standards.

The next-generation science standards are expected to be ready by the end of next year.
