According to the Modesto Bee, Roosevelt Junior High (Modesto City Schools) science teacher Mark Ferrante announced at back-to-school night that he would teach the theory of intelligent design alongside evolution. District officials said teaching ID will not happen however some trustees said that ID should be taught. Parents are equally diveded.
District trustee Nancy Cline said,
"The current curriculum states that the evolution of man, Darwinism, must be taught as a theory. I feel we do our students a disservice by not helping them become critical thinkers when we forbid the teaching of competing scientific theories, such as intelligent design."
However, Modesto City Schools spokeswoman Emily Lawrence said,
"He will not be teaching intelligent design. He has been instructed to teach the state standards and intelligent design is not in the state standards."
