Overview

Maher, chaplain to the School of Education at Loyola U. finds three significant themes in his survey of statements from the Church Universal and the Church American about education: education has a social nature, God is present in daily life, and all ways of knowing, both cognitive and effective, are integrated. He examines the perception that education is a divine mission that speaks through faith an culture to the future, the rights and duties of the Church, the state, parents, teachers and students and their interrelationships, the process of integrating the faith with life, the role of community, service, message and worship, and the reasons for preferences for Catholic schools, colleges and universities.
