This book examines the effects of faith schools on social cohesion and inter-ethnic relations. Faith schools constitute approximately one third of all state-maintained schools and two fifths of the independent schools in England. Nevertheless, they have historically been, and remain, controversial. In the current social climate, questions have been raised about the ability of faith schools to promote Community Cohesion and, included within that, their ability to promote tolerance. This book explores one aspect of the debate by examining the effect that faith schools have on their students' attitudes of tolerance. As well as asking what differences exist between students in faith and non-faith schools, it also looks at which aspects of the schools might be affecting the students and their attitudes towards different minorities. The book is a must-read for students and researchers in the fields of education and religious studies, as well as anyone with an interest in the place of faith schools in a modern multicultural society.

"This book will inform those interested in understanding the concept of tolerance in schools. To have confidence in extending the findings to other contexts around the globe, similar studies would need to be adopted and repeated." (Aaron Imig, International Journal of Christianity & Education, April 08, 2019) "Everett employs a mixed-method approach in examining concepts as complex and abstract as 'cohesion' and 'tolerance'. She uses the quantitative approach to capture students' attitudes towards minorities and the qualitative approach to extract the deeper meaning behind the expression of tolerance. ... The book clearly meets its objectives in investigating the differences between the attitudes of tolerance between the students of faith schools and non-faith schools in England ... ."
