Journal of Moral Education 8 (2):81-91 (1979)

Abstract After defining three broad positions adopted in the long?standing French polemic about secularism and education, and suggesting that they correspond to different attitudes to the state's sanctioning of consensus in a pluralist society, the author describes how the traditional boundaries between conflicting positions have been blurred by interventionist policies in education as well as by the evolution of Catholic attitudes. Illustrating his comments from recent controversies in France, he suggests that future discussion of the secularist issue may be more closely related to the actual content of the curriculum, especially in its social and moral aspects, than to the rehearsal of traditional grievances
