Most public schools avoid teaching their students about religion, and university students must enroll in religious studies courses in order to learn about it. Warren Nord shows that these practices are not religiously neutral; in fact, they border on secular indoctrination. Nord uses anexamination of textbooks to make a case for the study of religion in schools and universities, and explains how such study came to be neglected. He makes a number of arguments for taking religion seriously in the curriculum: most importantly, that a liberal education and critical thinking requireit, as does moral education. There are also civic reasons for taking religion seriously, and constitutional religious neutrality requires it. What is to be done? Nord proposes a two-part solution to the problem. First, he argues for a required religion course in both high schools and universities.Second, he contends that religion must become a field within secondary education. He concludes by showing how religion could be taken seriously within the main subject areas of the curriculum. Nord's goal is not just to understand conflicts in our culture wars, but to propose a solution that istheoretically sound and practical and can be implemented by incremental steps in the right direction.
