RE ‘more relevant than ever’ says survey

Seven out of ten UK adults think that religious education should reflect the diversity of backgrounds and beliefs in the UK today, new research has revealed. A further two-thirds of the population think that it is important that RE is part of the school curriculum today. The research among 2,000 adults, commissioned by education charity Culham St Gabriel’s Trust, also found that nearly seven in ten people claim to be comfortable discussing their beliefs, but just half think that having the opportunity to discuss their beliefs with others is important. Participants were also asked about their views on religious education in schools, with over six in ten agreeing that RE should be taught in schools.
