Devil's advocate:

If the ID lobby are hoping that evolution and other scientific theories are critically examined in class....in comparison to ID for example....then surely this will also involve a critical examination of ID itself?

And what better place to examine the "theory" of ID than in a science class? The students will be in the critical state of mind, the teacher will be a science graduate hopefully!

Compare it to the UK, where we study religion and beliefs in Religious Education classes. The basis of this teaching is "some people believe XYZ", whereas the basis in science class would be "some people believe in XYZ.....let's scientifically analyse their theories and claims".
