    Description

    Catholic schools provide nearly 10 per cent of the state-maintained secondary school places in England and Wales, and a further 4.5 per cent are provided by the Anglican Church. Recently a new breed of independent Christian schools has been provided by the more conservative churches, while Jewish schools, Islamic Schools and Sikh schools also now have an established place within the state maintained sector of education.

    In this new and innovative study, Francis draws on data provided by over 34,000 year nine and year ten pupils to examine how these religious schools shape the personal values of their pupils. This timely analysis is set in the context of the debate about citizenship education, and against the background of growing tensions between radical and faith communities throughout Britain.
