Abstract

One of the most significant recent issues for religious education in Catholic schools in the United States is the development, over a number of years, of a doctrinal content framework for approved textbooks. As the American experience has not been well documented this paper will focus on two tasks. Firstly, a description and contextualisation of the process that lead to the implementation of the current frameworks will be given. Secondly, some evaluative comments on the frameworks will be made with a view to initiating a dialogue on the place and role of textbooks in improving the quality of religious education in Catholic schools in the United States.
