Intelligent Design in the Public School Science Classroom
Hickey, Wesley D.
Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, v44 n1-2 p25-29 Dec 2013
The ongoing battle to insert intelligent causes into the science classrooms has been met with political approval and scientific rejection. Administrators in the United States need to be aware of the law related to creationism and intelligent design in order to lead in local curricular battles. Although unlikely to appease the ID proponents, there is a purpose for ID in the classroom. ID can be used to illustrate the foundational epistemological structure of science, which requires natural explanations and empirical data as opposed to revelation, tradition, and authority.
