In an article published today, Mary O'Keefe, a reporter for the La Cañada Valley Sun, asks how insulated California is from challenges to the theory of evolution with schools boards in other states like Pennsylvania and Kansas challenging Darwin's theory.

Scott Tracy, president of La Cañada Unified School District's Governing Board, and Jim Stratton, superintendent, have said that no one has approached them requesting Intelligent Design be introduced into the LCUSD curriculum.

Stratton added that if someone did request the change it would be a state matter. Unlike in Pennsylvania, a California school governing board cannot make arbitrary changes in curriculum."We have pledged to teach to the California standards. Intelligent Design is not a standard," Stratton said.
