Released Time Religious Education: A Primer
Butterfield, Rex M.
Religious Education, v112 n5 p465-476 2017
Released time religious education has a long history in the United States, but not all programs have been successful, and others have not even been legal! In this article, the legal history and cases involving religious education are explored with particular emphasis on the three prong Lemon test (named for one of the litigants). Practical suggestions for maintaining a robust, legal released time religious education program are also included.
