Clouse, Bonnidell A.
Contemporary Education, v68 n4 p220-26 Sum 1997
Examines the Religious Right's demands versus those of humanistic thinkers, discussing whether consensus is possible. One of the Religious Right's major tenets is that schools belong to the people and that parents are the most knowledgeable about students' needs. The religious right uses parents' strong emotions to further its cause and is suspicious of educational innovations. (SM)
