There will be elections for five state Board of Education seats in 2008, including seats held by staunch supporters of science from Topeka/Lawrence, the metropolitan Kansas City area, and Wichita, and by opponents of good science standards from Manhattan and the area south of Wichita.
Come listen and discuss why the Board of Education is important, and why you should care about these upcoming elections.
