Franken, Leni; Vermeer, Paul – British Journal of Religious Education, 2019
This article reflects on the place of RE in a pillarised education context, taking into account the fact of religious diversity and pluralisation among the school population on the one hand, and the freedom of religion and education of faith-based schools on the other.

Byrne, Richard; Devine, Dympna – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2018

Morris, Andrew B. – Policy Futures in Education, 2012

He suggests that to assume we are, in fact, living within a determinedly…
