The Catholic Educator and the Law.
Reitz, Donald J.
European legal traditions are bound very closely to the religious, moral, and ethical traditions of Christianity. It is therefore disconcerting to find persons involved in Catholic education, whether as students, staff, or professional educators, turning to civil authority to find just resolution of their school-related problems. It is especially disconcerting that appeals should need to be made to civil authority in an age that considers Catholic education as a ministry. Consideration of such areas of potential legal problems as teacher contracts, professional evaluations, classroom management, and student rights from the standpoint of a practically applied Christian charity can suggest positive steps to be taken that can prevent problems before they begin or can provide for easier, internal resolution of them if they arise.
