In an online chat that wrapped up minutes ago, Kansas Board of Education member Janet Waugh responded to my question about changing the science standards:
twhitson: Will there be any announcements before January about timetable, process, etc. for the science standards?
Janet Waugh: I doubt if the current majority would agree to discuss changing the standards; therefore, we will have to wait until January for the discussion to begin.
Waugh did say the science standards are among her top priorities, along with sex education and consideration for replacing the Superintendent hired by the former Board of Ed.
