School Wars

Resolving Our Conflicts over Religion and Values

Paperback Engels 1996 9780787902360
Verwachte levertijd ongeveer 8 werkdagen


School Wars examines the Religious Right′s challenge to public education––from concerns about sex education to attempts to restrict specific works of literature and textbooks. It takes an objective look at such subjects as the current conflict concerning the role of fundamentalism, the so–called religion of secular humanism, the state of public education, and global education and multiculturalism.

Drawing on their combined backgrounds of religious study and practice, as well as years of experience working in the field of education, the authors present research in educational theory and practice, highlight important court cases, and draw on philosophical and religious studies to reveal a foundation for understanding world views at issue. School Wars offers educators, community leaders, and parents a better way to understand and respond to the differing world views that lie at the center of this ongoing debate.
