Churches and Religious Education in England and Wales

From: Volume XIV, Issue 2: Winter 1994 Pages 94-115


Most Americans are unaware that for centuries religious education has been part of the public school curriculum in England and Wales. This article attempts to provide a historical and contemporary overview of church responses and policies toward such school-based religious education. It reveals how locally developed agreed syllabi were influenced by the main church bodies in England--and discusses the impact associations of evangelical churches. Implications are drawn for Christian and religious education in America.
