Kenneth Hurst, together with other parents , won the case when school board of Frazier Mountain High School in Lebec, California voted to end the course "Philosophy of Intelligent Design." Americans United Legal Director Ayesha N. Khan also requests the cancellation of Sharon Lemburg's class claiming that the purpose of the course is to undermine evolution and promote a religious perspective in it.
