This indispensable guide for teachers, students, and all those interested in the history and politics of pedagogy charts the course of religious education in England and Wales from 1944 to the present. The fully revised and updated second edition includes a major new chapter covering the years since the book’s original publication in 1995, and places recent changes in the religious education system in context through judicious use of documentary sources and interviews with key policy makers and curriculum practitioners. As Terence Copley engagingly explores the interaction between religious thinkers, educators, and politicians, Teaching Religion suggests that our approach to the teaching of religion within the national education system offers insight into the type of society we aspire to be.
