Kansas Citizens for Science is a not-for-profit educational organization that promotes a better understanding of what science is, and does, by:
- Advocating for science education
- Educating the public about the nature and value of science
- Serving as an information resource
KCFS was instrumental in challenging the 1999 Kansas State Board of Education’s decision to adopt state science standards that removed key aspects of the theory of evolution as well as other critical concepts in earth science and cosmology, and in resisting the efforts to insert Intelligent Design-influenced changes into the 2004 Science Standards.
In both cases, when moderates regained the majority on the Board, excellent science standards were reinstated.
KCFS is dedicated to keeping the public informed about this issue, and to helping defend quality science and science education in our state.
