The Objective Is Objectivity: A Survey of Teachers' Attitudes toward Teaching about Religion in the Public Schools.
Milson, Andrew J.
This study compares the attitudes of "somewhat" religious teachers toward teaching about religion in the public schools with the attitudes of very religious teachers. The sample consisted of public school teachers enrolled in elementary and secondary education courses at two Texas universities during the summer of 1995. Data were collected through the use of a researcher-constructed survey. An independent t-test was used to test the hypothesis. The statistical results (t=1.17, df=60, alpha .05) suggest that there is no significant difference between the attitudes of very religious and somewhat religious teachers. The findings suggest the religious convictions of a teacher do not appear to affect that teachers attitude toward teaching about religion in public schools. (EH)
