John L. Minck to the Kansas Board of Education

John L. Minck to the Kansas Board of Education
Creator: Minck, John L.
Date: August 24, 1999
John L. Minck of Palo Alto, California, writes the Kansas Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, concerning the Board's decision to remove the teaching of evolution from the state's science curriculum. Minck claims that a narrow-minded, conservative Christian worldview typifies the mindset of most Kansans. He argues that this mindset will undermine the intellectual development of Kansas children and impede their professional development as adults. Minck sent a copy of his letter to Governor Bill Graves. The April 1999 decision of the Kansas Board of Education reflects a broader movement by advocates of "intelligent design" to alter standards for science curriculum in public schools. This issue is also part of a broader national debate on the role of religion in public schools. The entire file of correspondence on the evolution debate from Governor Graves' office is available on Kansas Memory as unit 221202.
