There is discussion on how religious education (RE) in Dutch secondary education should look like and what the aims should be in case of a national curriculum. Until now the voice of the RE teachers themselves has not been listened to carefully. Therefore a quantitative questionnaire has been designed in order to study their views. The data show that Dutch RE teachers value RE as a subject which includes many divergent aims and foci. Teachers are of the opinion that also possible national final requirements should leave room for both knowledge and formation.
