Book Description

Religious Education in Schools: Ideas and Experiences from around the World.

Besides essays on the U.N.'s study paper and an introductory global survey, the booklet includes an overview of religious education in Northern Ireland, Turkey, Russia, South Africa, Nigeria, Taiwan, Australia, the United States, and Latin America. Some of the obstacles faced by educators and policy makers, as well as recommendations for future work, are offered.
