  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “In Germany, religious education a constitutional right, and bulwark against extremism” – below is their description.

    While in #France, the principle of la #laicité keeps religious instruction out of schools, in #Germany, education in matters of organised #religion is guaranteed by the country’s Constitution. Moreover, each of the sixteen regions can take a different approach on the subject. In the city-state of Hamburg, high school students of different faiths learn about all the mainstream religions, in a comparative and historical approach. Even those who describe themselves as atheists like the approach. And experts say it helps prevent radicalisation.
