Religions, Values and Education

 

 

Our aims are:

– To provide a forum within BERA for researchers of Religions, Values and Education in which to share their research and exchange ideas

– To raise the profile of issues that relate to Religions, Values and Education within the British Educational Research Association and the academy more generally

– To encourage recognition and discussion of research in these areas through the annual conference and by hosting seminars and encouraging research papers within BERJ and other journals

Religious and moral education are significant areas of the curriculum and contribute to school life in a variety of ways but they are often neglected within the wider educational community. The development of religious schools, issues to do with religious identity and pluralism and the nature of moral education with schools all have a significant impact on the nature of schooling as well as the characteristics of the subjects themselves. The SIG will encourage the development of all issues to do with the nature of religious and moral education or the related question of religion and morals in education. It will support research and discussion that considers religious and moral issues from a variety of disciplines as well as international perspectives.
