In "The Wisdom and Constitutionality of Teaching Intelligent Design in Public Schools", Professor Loewy explores the constitutionality of teaching intelligent design alongside evolution in public schools. In the article, Loewy explains that while the government cannot support or approve of religion in schools, it also cannot disapprove of religion. He argues a ban on teaching intelligent design in schools constitutes disapproval of religion, and is therefore unconstitutional under the neutrality standard required by the Supreme Court.
