Kansas School Board Primaries tomorrow

By Laura Ziegler

July 31, 2006 –

Usually overlooked during the last days of summer, primary elections - particularly for the school board - don't draw much attention. But that was before evolution and intelligent design, or sex education, or the controversial new commissioner of education put a spotlight on Kansas schools.
Now, the conservative majority that some say has made Kansas a punchline for night-time talk shows could be voted out of power.
