Religious Literacy & Religious Liberty for Public Schools @ Newseum (Freedom Forum Entrance on Sixth Street) | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Public schools in the United States have long been a battleground for cultural conflicts over the role of religion in the public square.   In recent decades, however, a broad agreement has been reached among education, civil liberties, and religious organizations that public schools can and should include study about religions in the public school curriculum.  We invite you to join our workshop to learn about pluralism, religious literacy, and the legal frameworks for teaching about religion in public schools.
