What Should Be the Relation of Religion and Public Education?


by John K. Norton 1954

Three propositions are dealt with in this article: 1. There should be friendly relations between religion and public education; 2. Public schools should teach about religion, should suffuse their curricula with the highest moral and spiritual values, but should refrain from sectarian religious teaching. 3. Tax funds should be reserved for public schools, and should not be appropriated to finance institutions under the control of religious denominations.
