It all boils down to two fundamental problems:
1. ID is not supported by the scientific evidence.
2. To date, pretty much every attempt to teach ID has been motivated by the desire to sneak religious creationism back into science class.
Both of those are excellent reasons it should not be taught as science in public classrooms. It could accurately be taught as an example of the so-called 'culture wars,' except I don't think any cdesign proponentsists want it taught that way.
