Catholic Education

Universal Principles, Locally Applied

Editor(s): Andrew B. Morris
Series: Ethics

Book Description

This collection of essays is concerned with the Catholic Church’s understanding of the nature of human flourishing and the processes of education that flow from it.

Each essay seeks, in its own way, to explore, illustrate and provide insights into the application of Catholic education policy and practice in differing socio/legislative circumstances.

The book is divided into three main sections. The first explores Catholic teaching on education, its ethical basis and the Christo-centred nature of Catholic school leadership. The second considers some of the structural characteristics of Catholic educational systems in England, the United States of America and Jordan. The third section illustrates, in a series of case studies, how the universal precepts underpinning Catholic education are implemented in a variety of national and international contexts.
