The Kansas Evolution Aftermath: Corkins' fate may be decided today

By Diane Silver

This afternoon at 3:30, ultra-conservative Education Commissioner Bob Corkins may well be out of the job -- or, at least, that's the speculation of Kansas newspapers.

The state Board of Education meets in a private conference call at that time. Conservatives are still in control of the board and will be until new board members take office in January. However, the mysterious meeting is said to involve "nonelected personnel." Stay tuned.

Corkins, of course, is most well known for having absolutely no education experience before taking office and for constantly searching for ways to funnel public money to private schools.

The sooner he is out of office and the search begins for a qualified commissioner, the better.
