El Tejon School District is and shall forever be a creationism-free zone

Well, the ID class in California is history. They're pulling it out.
In the settlement, the defendants agreed to end the class and to ensure that no school in the El Tejon School District, including Frazier Mountain High School, "shall offer, presently or in the future, the course entitled 'Philosophy of Design' or 'Philosophy of Intelligent Design' or any other course that promotes or endorses creationism, creation science, or intelligent design."
I'm kind of disheartened that Frazier didn't put up a fight. It would've been instructive to see what the arguments of both sides would be and how the courts would rule on this case, given the class was declared philosophy. Maybe the defendants thought they couldn't fool customs officials.
