Religious Education in Indonesia

An empirical study of religious education models in Islamic, Christian and Hindu affiliated schools

By Mohamad Yusuf

What type of religious education is preferred in Indonesia? This book distinguishes between mono-religious, multi-religious and inter-religious models of religious education, based on their differences in pedagogical aims and teaching methods, their normative basis, and the societal context in which they occur. The level of agreement with these different types of religious education is studied from three perspectives: the laws and regulations of the State, the policies of religiously-affiliated schools, and the preferences of students at religiously-affiliated schools.
