Book: Pagan Religions in Five Minutes

Chapter: 69. Should Pagan Religions be Taught in Schools?

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45536


Adding Pagan religions to school curricula, particularly in English state schools, depends on various factors, such as the school's context and the presence of Paganism in the community. Pagan themes, already present in children's literature and history, can offer insights into religious and spiritual aspects. However, teaching Paganism faces challenges, such as addressing misconceptions and recognising the diversity within traditions. Emphasising environmental care and ethical living in Paganism can benefit all pupils.
