Shifting Alliances: Church and State in English Education

Front Cover
Cassell, 1997 - Education - 184 pages
In European countries other than Britain, nineteenth century secularisation meant the Church's role in education was the subject of fierce controversy between Church and State. In England, however, the Church has always had a profound influence on education, and the main conflict has been interdenominational.

This book provides an historical overview of the relationships between the Churches and the state, and a detailed analysis of the reforms of the 1980s and 1990s.
