Despite the increasing numbers of self-defined “unaffiliated” Americans, religiosity continues to be a significant component of identity for many students. We have worked with a number of public school teachers who say they avoid interreligious education; either they are not clear on the laws around teaching about religion, or they fear offending students and their parents. Given globalization, and the need to cultivate multicultural literacy in our students, how do you think teachers can approach religion in their classrooms without treading on dangerous ground?
