Candidates Forum: Kansas State Board of Education

Monday, June 30, 2008

7:00-8:30 p.m.
Allison Middle School – Auditorium
221 S. Seneca
Wichita, Kansas
(parking and entrance rear of bldg.)

Sponsored by: Kansas Families for Education Foundation
Co-Sponsors: Mainstream Education Foundation
Kansas Citizens for Science Moderator: Randy Brown, Elliot School of Communication

All candidates who have filed to run for the 8th and 10th District Positions of the Kansas State School Board have been invited to participate. Come hear why these individuals have chosen to run for the board of education and where they stand on various public education issues affecting our schools. The final 20 minutes of the forum have been reserved for questions from the audience.

The decisions made by the Kansas State Board of Education (KSBOE) directly impact our schools and our students. In recent years, the KSBOE has taken several radical positions; even attempting to redefine "Science" as a discipline, touching off the Creationism vs Evolution debate. In the coming years, the Board will deal with issues related to NCLB, title I funding, and the definition of "at-risk". It is critically important that we as parents and as community members tune in to this election and let out voices be heard. This is a great opportunity to learn more about those seeking office.

How unfortunate that the NAACP would promote such a hateful event. This is little more than a thinly disguised attempt to ferret out people of faith and keep them out of the process. Shame on you.

There's not much different, given the groups involved, between this and a forum held by the KKK to make sure people of color are denied access to the political process. If you were true to your principles you would picket this event, not promote it.
