Participate in research on the difference between religious instruction and religious indoctrination and how these pedagogies the rights of the child

The purpose of this anonymous questionnaire is to develop a clearer understanding of religious indoctrination and how it affects children and adults who perceived they experienced it growing up. 

The questionnaire arises from the work of Dr Janet Goodall and Joy Cranham, in the Department of Education, at the University of Bath. 

There are ten questions in this survey and it will take about 10 minutes to complete; your participation is greatly appreciated. 

We would like to understand the similarities and differences between religious indoctrination and religious instruction and the impact these two pedagogies have on a child’s development especially with regards to The Convention of the Rights of a Child. To compare the two positions, we require participants who may have experienced either or neither instruction or indoctrination as children.

You can participate by clicking on the link below:

Once again, thank you for your participation. We will be presenting our findings at ICSA’s 2019 International Conference.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Joy Cranham at

Kindest regards,

Joy Cranham
