A bibliography of approximately 88 materials on the new right and education in the United States is presented. Although some of the publications are from the 1970s, most cover the 1980-1983 period. Specific topics include the following: school politics and the influence of interest groups and social movements; secular humanism and the schools; textbook and curriculum censorship in public schools; taking the moral majority seriously; the New Right movement and its impact; conservative pressures on the curriculum; censorship and creationism; the effect of conservatism on teacher education; morality, ethics, and the New Right; the resurgence of conservative Christianity (the Fundamentalist phenomenon); the new Christian right as a social and political force; the question of whether political ideologies influence education in the United States; the future of education's liberal consensus; the effect of new conservatism on women in education; the case for tuition tax credits; and the balance between church, state, and the schools.
