It is precisely this context that has evoked the call…

Go, J. C. – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2018
While critical rationality is an explicit goal of Catholic education, its practice in confessional Catholic religious education can be problematic for epistemological reasons: the prevailing Catholic religious epistemology may not be conducive to critical thinking in the RE classroom.
