Title Are Religious Education Teachers Losing their Religion? Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Times Educational Supplement Media type Web Duration/Length/Size 500 words Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 29/06/21 Description Contrary to popular belief, RE teachers are less likely to be religious than your average adult, research shows.
Hopefully, our research can help to promote the vision espoused by the 1972 Millar Report for non-denominational RE; of a non-affiliated profession enabling pupils to develop their own worldview vis-à-vis the study of humanity’s various attempts to grapple with existence.
We also hope this can also lead to renewed examination of the statutory framings for RE mentioned at the outset of this article – which continue to preserve suspicion and the view that one must be religious to teach RE.
