Dr Cathy Byrne: ‘It’s time to expel religious extremism from schools’

Dr Byrne, in The Conversation (24 February 2014), argues that we ought to provide children with a comprehensive understanding of different religions and non-religious world views and ethical systems. ‘We ought to teach them how to navigate the real world – which is diverse, religious and non-religious – and how to identify and be careful of extremist views of any kind. Religious extremism can be a dangerous thing, no matter which way it is pointing.’
