School Wars examines the Religious Right's challenge to publiceducation--from concerns about sex education to attempts torestrict specific works of literature and textbooks. It takes anobjective look at such subjects as the current conflict concerningthe role of fundamentalism, the so-called religion of secularhumanism, the state of public education, and global education andmulticulturalism.

Drawing on their combined backgrounds of religious study andpractice, as well as years of experience working in the field ofeducation, the authors present research in educational theory andpractice, highlight important court cases, and draw onphilosophical and religious studies to reveal a foundation forunderstanding world views at issue. School Wars offers educators,community leaders, and parents a better way to understand andrespond to the differing world views that lie at the center of thisongoing debate.
