Overview Offers a series of questions and answers to encourage readers to think about the place of religion in public, private, and denominational education from kindergarten to the postgraduate level.
Publishers Description Distinguished scholar and author Martin E. Marty has had a lifetime of conversations about public religion in America. Out of the dialogues hosted by the Public Religion Project, he has gathered an abundance of heartfelt questions and candid reflections on the issues from teachers and administrators in public, private, and denominational schools, elementary to postgraduate. Their concerns reflect our own: Does allowing religion into the curriculum inject conflict into our children's lives? Does it deny our families critical decisions? Can schools create good citizens without teaching about religion?
