Ererson Revisited explores the consequences and future implications of Everson a Board of Education, the landmark Supreme Court case that permitted the use of tax revenue to transport students to parochial schools while simultaneously calling for an impenetrable "wall of separation" between religion and public schools. Decided fifty years ago and controversial ever since, Everson has had a profound impact on the nature of American public education and has served as the precedent for rulings on school prayer, moments of silence, tuition tax credits, vouchers, and home schooling. Written by top scholars from a wide range of disciplines and ideological perspectives, this important collection of original essays urges political scientists, legal scholars, educational reformers, sociologists and anyone concerned about the future of American education to revisit the Everson ruling and reconsider the proper relationship between religion and education.
