LOOKING AT DEVELOPING EDUCATION GOD’S WAY
Christian Education is often an overused and abused word. There are many Independent schools who use the expression Christian Education, but what do they mean?
For some schools, Christian Education is:
- Middle class values
speaking nicely, having good manners, knowing how to conduct oneself in polite society;
focusing on social justice and community service activities;
- Identifying with a church
understanding and taking part in its rituals and practices;
- Adopting an ethos
focusing on a set of values or commitments.
For Christian Schools Australia, Christian Education is much more. To this end, we have begun to use the word Kingdom Education.
