Standards on Evolution have how much Effect?

From the Topeka Capital-Journal, on the topic of the flip-flopping (and next month, flipping again) of the state standards on science and the topic of evolution:
When it comes down to the heart of the debate — what should children learn in science classrooms — the fight may have little effect.

“It’s such a small part of our science curriculum it really hasn’t had any effect at all on us,” said Mike Mathes, superintendent in Seaman Unified School District 345.

The article quotes several other teachers and advocates on both sides of the question. They come to the same conclusion: tempest in a teapot.
