District 4 Race For State Education Board In Full Swing

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-The Kansas Board Of Education race in district 4 is proving to be more than just a division between party lines.

Religion and science seem to be a main issue between Democratic incumbent Carolyn Campbell and Republican challenger Jack Wu.

Carolyn Campbell has an experienced track record within the Topeka public schools and the Kansas Legislature.

Jack Wu has called Topeka home for four years after moving from California to join the Westboro Baptist Church.

The teaching of evolution in Topeka's public schools is one issue the two distinctly differ on.

Wu says, "I don't think it should be taught in public schools because it is a satanic lie and it goes against the bible where it says God created heaven and earth and created man out of the dust of the earth and he created male and female."

Carolyn feels evolution should stay, saying, "I believe it should be taught in the schools. We cannot just throw out things because of religion. The kids need to be well rounded and I will continue to feel that it should be taught in our classrooms."
