Social Justice Tenets Guiding this Course
The content and goals of this course are consistent with three tenets of Catholic social justice teaching that inform the School of Education programs.
Subsidiarity: Educational institutions should be organized and governed as much as possible by the community being served; education should only be controlled at higher levels of society when it cannot be done effectively locally.
Dignity and rights of children: Children possess full human dignity and are bearers of rights which should be recognized and upheld in educational processes.
People have a right to an education: All people have a responsibility, for the good of society, to contribute to and foster education.
