Religionsundervisning i kommunal skola respektive friskola
Abstract (Summary)AbstractThe purpose of this paper is to examine how the religious education is implemented in junior and grammar school. As a base for my examination I used two private schools and two municipal schools. My main goal was to get a better view of the content of the education, the treatment of the students and the conditions for the students to get a greater understanding and respect for others’ religious beliefs and opinions through education. To reach this goal I did interviews and field studies which means that the paper has a qualitative approach.The examination showed clearly that the private schools spend a lot more education time on their respective religions while the municipal schools have a more comprehensive education. Regarding the treatment of the students I could not find any differences since all of theschools gave the students space to express their opinions and thoughts. However there are clear differences when it comes to understand others’ opinions and respect other people’s religious views, since the students in the private schools only meet students with the same religion and views; they do not meet other students who do not share their thoughts.
