Description

The intersection of education and religion raises complex questions and provokes heated-sometimes fraught-debates. Fundamentally, what is the role of religious education in national curricula? And how especially does religious education work in countries that seek explicitly to separate church from state? What is the relationship between research and classroom practice? And what of religious education in non-school settings? What place should so-called faith schools (such as Brooklyn's Khalil Gibran International Academy) have in modern plural societies? And, more broadly, how far should publicly funded education officials seek to accommodate the views and feelings of religious communities? This new four-volume Routledge collection addresses these and other controversies. Edited by two leading scholars, Education and Religion meets the need for an authoritative reference work to codify and make sense of the field's burgeoning literature. The editors have drawn on the most important and influential research from a broad range of countries and perspectives to create a one-stop 'mini library'. With comprehensive introductions to each volume, newly written by the editors, Education and Religion is an essential addition to Routledge's Major Themes in Education series. It is destined to be valued by educationalists and scholars working in related areas as a vital reference and research tool.show more
