This paper introduces this 'issue on the challenges of religiously affiliated schools within a multicultural society from two perspectives. The first is from the perspective of the philosophical debate on multiculturalism on the basis of Taylor’s “politics of recognition’’. The second perspective is the multi-level character of this multiculturalism debate regarding religiously affiliated schools. This debate touches all levels of the educational institution: the macro-level, such as national policy on education, law, legitimization of religiously affiliated schools, relation to the churches; the meso-level, such as identity of schools, school ethos, admission of pupils, normative school leadership, or parental influences on the school board; and the micro-level such as religious education or moral education.
