These needs are displayed through their, “continuing interests in morals and ethnic concerns, and questioning concerning the quest for truth and meaning in life,” (21). The students who attend public schools consider religion nothing more than a topic to argue about. As one of the students, Enio said, “Who really cares anyway? My way of looking at things is that people can believe whatever they want,” (25). In order to improve the religious dimensions of Catholic schools students should be given the experience of other religious perspectives aside from their own.
It was just a multiple choice question. The author also argues that children’s moods, their skills and disabilities, and drive to achieve affect the way they take these tests. Why make homeschooled students take the same tests as public schools, when public schools are obviously not succeeding at education? Bittner goes on to argue that testing cannot sufficiently measure homeschoolers’ learning. Homeschoolers are not taught out of a textbook; they learn more by reading and picking up
One difference between the Democrat and the Republican Party is their views on family values. Family values within nations such as America normally have a religious basis, meaning personal choices are made based on ethical lessons taught within religious scripture, typically in western countries, the religion is Christianity. Family values is the concept of basing family rules or unofficial laws within families based on the cultural norm, - the family will normally impose house rules as to what is socially acceptable, based on the same teachings of their upbringing or religious belief. However, in a more liberal society, the term 'family value' has become more of a vague term, often seen as dated for a number of reasons,- such as Christianity no longer being taught within schools, or women's rights being taught more within schools. Because of this, the modern definition of 'family planning' has lead to some controversy amongst politicians within America.
Select one issue that affects American youth today and which has constitutional dimensions. Examine the context and the details of this debate, analyzing both sides of the debate. What resolution do you feel is best for you personally and for the nation? Choose from the following. • the school’s right to monitor your email and internet use • the schools’ right to dictate and implement a dress code • your right to refuse to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance • your right to practice your religion as a public school student – through prayer, school clubs, class presentations, etc.
Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. John and Mary are having an impasse with prayer in schools. The First Amendment protects both the believers and non-believers by being neutral about belief. Children and adolescences have the right to choose to pray voluntarily. “The Supreme Court has ruled that students are allowed to organize, voluntarily, religious clubs -- which can include prayer and Bible study—at public schools, just as they might any other kind of club (Mosser, 2010, pa. 2.3)” Yes, we should keep religion and school separate, but the children has the choosing to do it voluntary.
Teachers should model their values and morals while fulfilling their duties as a teacher. However, when the teacher includes religion in the curriculum, he or she should not take sides concerning religion. Teachers should remain neutral when dealing with religion in the school curriculum. The correct way to approach religion in the classroom is to remain objective, neutral, balanced and most importantly, fair. BIBLICAL FOUNDATION Government in Curriculum Development The government’s part in the school curriculum is represented by the Department of Education (Dep Ed) basically for the education curricular, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) which represents the graduate education, and the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC).
but they are often associated with a particular religion. Faith schools are mostly run like other state schools. They are partly funded by the governing body, local authority and charities. They have to follow the national curriculum except for religious studies, where they are free to only teach about their own religion. They may have strict admissions criteria and staffing policies may be different too, although anyone can apply for a place.
Those believing that evolution should not be taught in classrooms feel that the concept of evolution contradicts one of the concepts promoted by the Bible, known as creationism, or “Creation Science.” Creation Science is a component of Christian fundamentalism that believes Biblical views must be taught in all school subjects, particularly science. Those that believe in creationism believe that the Bible must be interpreted literally, and thus some can still be found that believe that the earth is flat, space flight is a conspiracy, the sun revolves around the earth, or that grasshoppers have four legs, since the Bible describes each of these matters and it must be taken literally (Young, Why Creation Science Must Be Kept Out Of The Classroom). Hence, creationists do not believe in evolution, since the Book of Genesis states that the earth, and all the species within it (including humans), was created by a Supernatural Hand
What if there are children who don't believe in the same thing you do? The US constitution states that the public school system may not favor one religion and if you don't want to teach the facts then your going to have to teach every single belief that exists as to remain impartial. Also there are beliefs but there are also proven facts and I think that that is more important and more valuable then beliefs because it is more relevant and applicable to the real world then the theory of creationism or and religious belief for that
Why allow Christian education? Many people ask themselves this question. Well God, our creator, intended for us to have biblical knowledge of Him, according to Deuteronomy 6:7, the Word of God commands parents to teach Godly principles to their children "when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." This simply means that parents must be consistent to train their children in what is right, wherever we are and in whatever we are doing. Having a Christian education allows students to have proper character training, a higher standard of conduct, and positive peer influences.
