I would be interested to know the following:

a) If teaching Resources or literature of any kind produced by the Centre for Intelligent Design has been sent to any schools? If so I would like details - i.e. what volume of resources have been received as well as the content of those resources.

b) If resources have been received from the Centre for Intelligent Design, have they been used in teaching?

c) If any representatives from the Centre for Intelligent Design have visited any schools to speak to students or teachers?
