Religious Character in Church of England Schools: The Relationship between a Religious Tradition and Its Educational Institutions
Jelfs, Helen
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v22 n1 p52-74 2013
Research into the relationship between the Anglican tradition and its schools is relatively undeveloped in England. The research reported here draws on Benne's (2001) significant components of the relationship between educational institutions and their founding religious tradition to examine whether these components are a helpful way of describing religious character in Anglican schools. While school leaders and staff are committed to the Christian faith and seek to establish an ethos informed by Christian beliefs and practices, they are less able to articulate a distinctive philosophy of education particularly with respect to teaching, learning and the curriculum; some reasons for this are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 3 footnotes.)
