First published in 2005, this timely volume challenges those who see faith schools as contributing positively to the well-being of society and responding to parent choice to think through the implications of September 11 for our multi-ethnic and multi-faith society without taking a position on the ultimate necessity of faith schools.

The authors conducted research in several faith-based schools representative both of older religious traditions in England and Wales, and of those which have been more recently established. The focus was on state-funded faith-based schools, but a range were visited to provide an overview of issues facing all faith-based schools, as well as those specific to newly funded institutions.

Table of Contents

1. Setting the Scene. 2. Faith-Based Schooling: An Historical Perspective. 3. The Emergence of New Faith-Based Schools. 4. Community, Family and Culture. 5. Legal Matters and Accountability. 6. Curriculum Issues. 7. Special Educational Needs Practice in Faith-Based Schools. 8. Social Justice or Social Division? 9. A Future for Faith-Based Schooling: Final Thoughts.
