Canadian Courts, Constitution, Charter and Catholic Schools: Intersecting Powers
Young, Erin; Ryan, Thomas G.
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v23 n3 p237-254 2014
This review examines outcomes, tensions, and variables contained in eight Canadian legal cases, which are important because of their profound implications for current and future stakeholders of Catholic education. These cases prompt educators to re-examine the understanding of student rights, teacher rights, and the rights of the Catholic school boards. It is not the intention as researchers and authors to defiantly question Catholic school boards' authority to promote the Catholic religion; rather it is to contrast this authority with the rights of all citizens outlined within the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
