Summary

Faith-based Identity of Catholic Schools: Curriculum Perspectives examines the relationship between faith-based education and whole curriculum at a time when neo-liberal ideologies and market values are having a disproportionate influence on national education policies.

Topics addressed include: current challenges and dilemmas faced by Catholic Education leadership; Catholic social teaching and its implications for whole curriculum; the opinions of teachers in Queensland Catholic schools regarding faith-based school identity with particular reference to whole curriculum; an associated comparison of these opinions teachers with those of their USA peers; school identity and Catholic social teaching in Ontario Catholic schools; an action research approach to the integration of Catholic social teaching in Queensland Catholic schools; longitudinal study of the views of pre-service teachers at a Catholic university regarding the purposes and characteristics of Catholic schools.

Bringing together professionals and academics from across the world, Faith-based Identity of Catholic Schools: Curriculum Perspectives will inspire Catholic and other faith-based educators to appreciate the importance and potential of the integration of faith-based perspectives such as counter-cultural Catholic social teaching across the school curriculum in an educationally appropriate manner.
