Toil and Trouble Confirmed: The Demise of Hallowe'en in English Primary Schools
Plater, Mark
British Journal of Religious Education, v29 n2 p169-177 Mar 2007
The claim that Hallowe'en has been eliminated from English primary schools is tested through empirical research in south-east England. The reasons given by teachers for their inclusion or non-inclusion of the subject are then explored. Finally, questions are raised about the implications of the findings for children's ongoing personal development, and proposals offered on how schools should respond. (Contains 1 table and 2 notes.)
