Religion Studies and "Back to Basics"--Friends or Foes?
McMillan, Richard C.
Educational Leadership, v38 n5 p399-401 Feb 1981
Supreme Court rulings specify that the study of religion in the the public schools must be undertaken from an objective point of view and as part of a program of secular (rather than religious) education. However, the "Back to Basics" movement is a conservative educational philosophy with strong moral and religious overtones. (Author/MLF)
