Ed. & Schooling in RC Schools
This course is an examination of the history of Roman Catholic Education in Canada and the philosophy upon which Catholic Education has grown. A brief background of the Biblical foundations of Christianity, its expansion leading to Western European influence through to its present status in our secular society will be examined. The course will provide students with opportunities to examine their own Educational Philosophies and the people, events and institutions that have contributed to their attitudes towards Catholic Education. Along with this, past and current issues will be studied, including the impact of Catholic Education on First Nations' Peoples.
