Religion and Education in a Global Context

The purpose of this course on religion & public education in an international context is for us to engage together in a critical analysis of what continues to be an important contemporary issue. The seminar is designed especially for students preparing for careers in teaching - in both public & private/religious schools, educational administration, educational research, or other professions which will involve them in the ongoing public debates about the uneasy relationship of religion & public education in the United States & other countries. The course will examine these issues historically & in terms of current policy debates & students will be asked to make connections to their own educational practice.
