Relationships between state-based religion studies courses and denominational religious education
Rossiter, Graham. (2007). Relationships between state-based religion studies courses and denominational religious education. Journal of Religious Education. 55(1), pp. 30 - 37.
This article explores relationships between state religion studies courses and denominational religious education in Australia putting the relationship into historical perspective. In the United Kingdom, where these programs first evolved, the two diverged as and educational identity for religion studies developed. This separation flowed over to into Australian developments, especially in the formative years during the 1970s. The division remains embedded in the theory underpinning Australian programs in the 2000s, even though, ironically, religion studies courses have been taken up almost exclusively by religious schools.
