Example text

The pupils come from a variety of backgrounds—some religious, some not, and with varying intensity. Some are trying to find their own way, which sometimes means facing the tricky question of how much to depart from the views held by family members. Being sensitive to the position of pupils means providing an ‘open’ RE, one in which there will be no assumptions about the conclusions pupils will come to, if any. To many people this kind of RE is very appropriate for community schools. If you wish to teach this kind of RE you need not be personally practising a particular religion, though if you do have a commitment in one particular religion you are not disqualified provided you accept the value of teaching several religions in a fair, accurate and balanced way.

Elsewhere it is either handled at a distance through denominational schooling, by visitors to schools providing voluntary supplementary education to pupils from specific communities, or by complete banishment from state classrooms. Perhaps RE is there in the curriculum to inoculate the population against the worst excesses of religion? What would the British curriculum, and British society, look like without RE? Where, and how, would religion be encountered? Can you learn from religion without a structured form of learning about it?

If RE has anything to do with addressing the issues of the nature of religion and of existence then it has to address both parts of Smart’s answer, not just the first. It must consequently seek to find more answers, and recognise that it is not the only subject that does so. RE does not own religion in the curriculum, and the religions certainly do not own RE. RE: CULTIVATING HUMANITY In 1998, ten years after RE’s legal re-creation, the real process of RE development is going on, as always, elsewhere.
