Courts long ago banned public school teachers from preaching of any
kind. But the question remains: How much should schools teach about
the world's religions? Veteran education journalist Linda K.
Wertheimer traveled to communities around the nation, listening to
voices on all sides of the controversy surrounding teaching
religion in public schools. She interviewed clergy, teachers,
children, and parents who are Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Sikh, or
atheist. Wertheimer's fascinating investigation reveals a public
education system struggling to find the right path forward and
offers a promising roadmap for raising a new generation of
religiously literate Americans.
