Dover CARES Wins!!

The Dover school board had 9 seats up for election and the Dover CARES group won 8 of the 9 seats. Dover CARES said “… that if intelligent design is referenced, it should be in an elective course, such as comparative religion.” while the incumbants favored “..mentioning intelligent design in biology classes.” So based upon the Dover CARES group, even with the ruling by the Judge in January, they will take this requirement off the books.

“This is a sad day, not only for Kansas kids, but for Kansas,” said Janet Waugh, who voted against the new standards. “We’re becoming a laughingstock, not only of the nation, but of the world.”

Yes Kansas, yes you are…
