The Christianization of our Public Schools w/ Katherine Stewart
Our guest is Katherine Stewart, journalist and author of numerous books including “The Good News Club: The Christian Right’s Stealth Assault on America’s Children.” She argues that many public school Christian clubs, like the one she discovered at her children’s elementary school, are used to convert and proselytize to other children under the guise of religious freedom. How strong is the push of Christianity in the public schools? If such clubs are legal, should anything be done to prevent their formation? What boundaries should be in place regarding students religious freedom in the public schools? Stewart has been published in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Village Voice, The Guardian and more.
