Inter-Cultural Education and Religious Education, 1940-1960
Elias, John L.
Religious Education, v103 n4 p427-439 Jul 2008
This article describes the inter-cultural education movement in the United States in the years 1940 to 1960. Drawing on material found in "Religious Education" and other sources, it focuses in a special way on the contribution that religious educators made to this movement. The article presents the social analyses made by religious educators, the stated theoretical bases for their engagement, and a description of noteworthy practices in inter-cultural education and religious education. The article concludes that this movement paved the way for the somewhat broader movement that began in the 1960s and continues to this day.
