The relationship between religion and schooling is a complex issue for nation states as religion has changed in concept and increased in significance upon developments in multiculturalism, globalisation, political ideology, and religious education pedagogies. Ms Tsukigawa has developed a theoretical framework that identifies how global variables have shaped the concept of religion within education policy. Drawing upon the sociology of religion, the history of education, and the case studies of New Zealand Ms Tsukigawa identifies three phases of relationship between religion and schooling that explain the historical development of religion and schooling and the contemporary debates facing nation states. Ms Tsukigawa provides a means to understand the variables that determine the conceptualisation of religion within nation state education policy, thereby enhancing the ability to critically evaluate the relationship between religion and schooling.
