Summary

This report is designed to bring schoolmen and other interested citizens up to date on sensitive areas where religion and public education frequently touch off heated debate, therefore it probes the question of school prayers, teaching of evolution, classroom study of the Bible, as well as the pros and cons of government aid to nonpublic schools--an issue heading toward a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court. As the latest of a series dissecting major issues in education, the report details the history and remarkable recent growth of parochiaid, noting that it has been spurred by the widely publicized fiscal crisis of Catholic schools which educate 85 percent of the nation's 6 million nonpublic schoolchildren. The report also cites the widespread notion that two decisions "banned" the Bible from public school classrooms, but notes as a matter of fact that the judges went out of their way to encourage the study of religion and the Bible. Only recently, as a result of urgings from various segments of American society, has religion gained ground in public school curriculums. (Author/AWW)
