Research Title

Does the religious and moral education taught in Scottish schools today directly oppose the beliefs and codes of the student's own community? Is something very important at risk of being lost and how would this loss alter a community?

Research Summary

My research question “How Does a Scottish Community Engage with Anti-Sectarianism?” seeks to discover a more informal, non-authoritarian approach which is of the community. My sub-question seeks to discover “How Practical Theology is informing and supporting that engagement”.
