In Favour of Ethics Education, against Religious Education
Tillson, John
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v45 n4 p675-688 Nov 2011
The questions that I address are: "What ought to become of Religious Education (RE)?" and "To what extent do non-religious beliefs belong in RE?" I will argue that there are compelling reasons for studying religious and non-religious views alongside each other, but that there are serious objections to doing this in the context of any subject called "religious education" and that a new compulsory, national curriculum subject called Ethics would be an appropriate context for such study.
