No Quarrel in New Mexico

The online version of the Albuquerque Journal has an article about the new Superintendent of Schools for the city.

The superintendent-designate of the Albuquerque Public Schools hails from Kansas, which triggered a national backlash when it opened the door to teaching creationism in its public schools. Winston Brooks, who will move from Wichita to take the helm of APS by July 1, has some thoughts on the evolution/creation debate— but no plans to push for teaching creation theories here. And it's doubtful he could do so, even if he wanted, given state control of district curricula, its policies on the subject, and opposition from the APS board.

This is welcome news, given that there are fights going on elsewhere in the nation about this.
