AU Sues School Over Elective Intelligent Design Class

Americans United for Separation of Church and State has filed suit against a California school district that is offering an elective course in philosophy on "Intelligent Design" in a public high school.

I think it may be possible to structure a constitutionally permissible philosophy or comparative religion course that could discuss "Intelligent Design" along with other religious and philosophical explanations of creation and origins. The class at Frazier Mountain High School in Lebec, California, however, appears to be structured to present a single religious perspective.

Public schools have no business endorsing or promoting any religious perspective.
