'Philosophy of Design' Class Taken to Court

Americans United for Separation of Church and State on behalf of 11 parents filed suit January 10 against the El Tejon Unified School District in Lebec, California to stop a course they say advocates Intelligent Design and other concepts of creationism. The course taught at the Frazier Mountain High School is categorized as a philosophy class and is elective.

On the American United website Executive Director Barry Lynn says "Religious Right activists are looking for every opportunity to proselytize students into their doctrines. The so-called ‘philosophy’ course in Lebec is the latest maneuver in a long line of misguided schemes. This situation has nothing to do with academic freedom or teaching critical thinking."
