Keywords:religion, religious freedom, education, public schools, private schools, religious instruction, confessional education
Recent socio-political developments across the globe have compelled governments to reconsider the extent and the means of setting boundaries between what can be regarded as the private and public domains of their citizens’ lives. Such boundarysetting has so far taken various forms, one of which concerns freedom of religion and the right to religious instruction in public schools. Based on several boundary-setting case studies, we conclude that boundary-setting in the public education sector has become an inescapable and justifiable reality.
