Religion and Education: Does Behavior Analysis Have a Role?

Domain: Theory
ELIZABETH GHEZZI (Student), Ramona Houmanfar (University of Nevada, Reno)

There are currently 13 states that have school districts outlining science curriculum either allowing or not allowing intelligent design (creation science) to be considered. Of those 13 states, 7 allow creation science to be taught at the high school level. The purpose of this presentation is to provide a review of the literature associated with the role of religion in education, and addresses the significance for behavior science. More specifically, our discussion will focus on how behavior science describes, studies, and adapts its associated technology to a global community that is religious.
