Podcast Ep. 91: Linda K. Wertheimer, Author of Faith Ed

Our latest podcast guest is Linda K. Wertheimer, author of Faith Ed: Teaching About Religion in an Age of Intolerance.


Wertheimer is a former education editor of the Boston Globe and a reporter at the Dallas Morning News and Orlando Sentinel.

We spoke with her about groups that oppose the teaching of basic Islamic beliefs in public schools; whether teachers are properly equipped to objectively discuss religion in the classroom; and why atheists, Mormons, and Jews tend to know more about religion than larger faith groups.
