Religion has a positive role to play in institutions of learning. Public schools should not be afraid to openly explore ways of accommodating religious practices. This thesis aims to challenge and change those attitudes that uncritically push for the strict separation of church and state. The thesis examines the development of religious diversity and the historical relationship between religion and education. It examines the relevant Supreme Court cases that deal with issues of public education and religious accommodation. The thesis concludes with observations about the problems of accommodation as well as possible solutions. Includes 53 notes. Contains a 14-item bibliography. (BT)
