KN DOE Turns Its Back on Journo Students

Intelligent designImage via WikipediaA dying field with insufficient prospects for job growth.
That's how the Kansas Department of Education views journalism, which means fewer vocational dollars for school journalism programs statewide beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, according to a story in the Topeka Capital Journal. Money from the Career and Technical Education (CTE) fund will not find its way to train prospective journalists based on the state DOE's review of labor market data.
Of course, the Kansas Board of Education a mere five years ago voted 6-4 to approve public school science standards that gave a boost to intelligent design and creationism at the expense of Darwin's theory of evolution, so "TUOL" hopes the state isn't a bellwether of a national trend.
