Ideologies of Religion and Diversity in Australian Public Schools
Byrne, Catherine
Multicultural Perspectives, v14 n4 p201-207 2012
In many multicultural democracies, education has a Christian history. However, teaching religion has ideological variation. Progressives teach about many religions, while conservatives favor (often exclusive) instruction into one tradition. Australian secular education controversially prioritizes faith-forming instruction (mostly Christian). In this exploratory study (N = 123) the author examines pedagogical preference and attitudes toward religious diversity. (Contains 4 footnotes and 3 tables.)
