Assessing the Practicality and Relevance of Adventist Educational Philosophy in a Contemporary Education Paradigm
Jackman, W. Marc
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v23 n3 p307-325 2014
This article examines the key tenets of contemporary education philosophy and compares it to the principles of the Adventist educational philosophy. The intent is to determine whether Adventist educational philosophy aligns with the demands of contemporary education. In this vein, 10 key principles of contemporary education are first described. Then, the principles of Adventist educational philosophy are articulated and examined to determine if they meet the demands of contemporary education. Finally, the article concludes by looking at the implications of this critical analysis for the current status of Adventist educational philosophy.
