    "Critics argued that the board's decision to play down evolution in science
    classes made the state look backward; proponents said it lets local school
    districts decide what to teach."

    I ran into the above quote in a news item about the Kansas elections. It
    seems to me that the last statement raises an interesting question,
    especially in these days of universal - and equal - education. Should local
    school districts have the power to decide what to teach?
