Teaching for Religious Tolerance in Modesto: Just Enough, but Not Too Much
Lester, Emile
Phi Delta Kappan, v93 n4 p38-43 Dec 2011
A little over a decade ago, Modesto Calif. Public schools Superintendent James Enochs undertook what became a groundbreaking initiative that resulted in the creation of the nation's only required course in world religions. He did so by convening the city's clergy and community leaders and leading school administrators to fashion a course organized around safety and respect for all religions. The result, the author says, should be a model for schools across the country.
