This text is an accessible overview of the debates, issues, and practicalities of faith-based education. It sets out the challenges and opportunities of different approaches to faith schools and addresses the choices faced by parents in our plural and multicultural communities, as well as the education investment and development currently undertaken by faith schools. Finally, the case is presented for and against faith schools, with a summary chapter attempting to provide the way forward for the debate.

The book addresses the concerns, questions, and interest surrounding the legitimacy, support, and intended expansion of faith schools in the UK. It sets out the historical and legal background of the establishment of such schools within the framework of state comprehensive educational provision and discusses the reason it is difficult to jettison these at present.


Roy Gardner is Course Leader for Advanced Short Courses, Denis Lawton is Professor of Education and Jo Cairns is Lecturer in Education all at the Institute of Education, University of London.

Until fairly recently the separation of pupils according to religion was felt to be compatible with a comprehensive education. That consensus no longer holds and there is a strong positive lobby either to absorb faith schools altogether within the state system or at least to dilute their membership ensuring they include children from other faiths, or no faith at all.This book addresses the current concerns, questions and interest surrounding the legitimacy, support and intended expansion of faith schools. Divided into five sections, it includes chapters on:* the legal frameworks for faith schools and the rights of the child* faith-based schools in the UK, Northern Ireland, France and the USA* the impact of faith schools on pupil performance* faith schools, religious education and citizenship* political and research issues.Faith Schools: Consensus or Conflict? is of interest to educators, policymakers, researchers and students of education, religion and sociology.
