The Urgent Need for Teacher Preparation in Religious and Secular Worldview Education
Gardner, Ryan S.; Soules, Kate; Valk, John
Religious Education, v112 n3 p242-254 2017
In a world that is becoming increasingly globalized, it is ironic--as well as unfortunate and sometimes tragic--that secular and religious worldview education is decreasing, in the United States, Canada, and elsewhere. This article argues for the immediate need for programs that intentionally prepare teachers for all aspects of the educational workforce to reverse this trend. Teachers who are well prepared to help students understand, respect, appreciate, and learn from others with differing worldviews will help produce a generation of citizens who will promote greater respect, tolerance, harmony, and peace on school campuses (at all levels), in the workplace, in neighborhoods, within nations domestically, and in the global community.
