Book Description

June 1 2012 1858564891 978-1858564890
This book examines how policies designed to integrate Muslim communities, along with fears of extremism, are shaping the way schools and teachers approach the teaching of Islam. It shows how Islam is represented in textbooks and in relation to other religions and engages with complex themes that link the role of education to identity and values. The book challenges the way current approaches locate Islam within education and offers a new perspective for teachers and schools who are committed to developing an open and critical environment for learning.

The topics covered include:
* The social cohesion agenda and Islam
* Teaching and learning Islam - the raw materials
* Islam and religious tolerance
* Islam and the limits of multicultural education
* Islam, radicalization and education: an international picture
* Islam, social cohesion and the end of critical engagement in education

Islam and Educationwill be a provocative and challenging read for education professionals and those interested in the links between religion, education and social policy. For religious education teachers it is essential reading.
