Summary
Thomas (emeritus educational psychology and international education, U. of California-Santa Barbara) looks at controversies about religion in schools as an interaction between the perspectives of the state, the church, secularists or the concerned secular public, and public schools. The controversies he profiles include Darwin, prayer and scripture reading, financial support, holidays, and sexual matters. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
