Faith, Knowledge and Indoctrination: A Friendly Response to Hand
Siegel, Harvey
Theory and Research in Education, v2 n1 p75-83 2004
Michael Hand's pithy and challenging essay (Hand, 2003) offers a neat, clear and powerful argument against "faith schools". I am in considerable sympathy with Hand's position. However, I think his argument can be strengthened, and weaknesses in it remedied or avoided. In this brief note, I offer some modest suggestions, which are intended as "friendly amendments" to Hand's argument. (Contains 3 notes.)
