The Culture Wars in Public Schools

September 03, 1996

For over a decade, the religious right has been waging a grassroots battle over the hearts and minds of school children. The struggle, which at first focused around curricula, has widened over the past few years to include a debate over how, and even if, education would be funded publicly. Barbara Bernstein will take us to the front lines of the culture wars in the classroom. Her series is called "Carefully Taught: Clashing Values in the Classroom."
