A preview of next week's hearings in Kansas on how science will be taught in their schools. In presentations over several days, advocates for the teaching of evolution and the idea of "intelligent design" will speak to a subcommittee of the Kansas State Board of Education. The board is scheduled to revise curriculum standards for science in June.
