Religion, Democratic Community, and Education: Two Questions
D'Souza, Mario Osbert
Canadian Journal of Education, v35 n4 p137-164 2012
This paper examines the mediating role that education plays between religion and democratic community. The paper is situated in the Canadian context and examines this mediation through two questions: First, what is the relationship between religion and education and what is the contribution of this relationship to and within a pluralist society? And, second, do schools have a responsibility in developing a unified model of who the citizen is as a person? Both questions are founded upon the premise that citizens are more than citizens; they are also persons.
