Religion in American Education: A Historical View.
Wright, Elliott A.
Phi Delta Kappan, v81 n1 p17-20 Sep 1999
Nineteenth-century common schools offered no course about religion or its role in American society. Moral education up through the mid-20th century embodied a kind of generalized Christianity. If universalized versions of the Golden Rule and the Ten Commandments prevail, educators should reconsider the merits of common-school philosophy. Contains 18 references. (MLH)
