Religion in the Public School Curriculum.
Morris, J. B.
The primary purpose of academic instruction in religion in the public schools is to inform children about religion rather than to indoctrinate them. When the study of religion is presented objectively as part of a secular program of education, there are no legal barriers. Now that the Supreme Court has settled the debate about what can and cannot be done, the major question facing the schools is whether they desire to design and implement religion in their curriculum. If it is determined that religion is to be included, it may be approached through special courses, units within courses, or enrichment activities. (Author/IRT)
