The teacher of religion

choosing between professions in catholic schools

Kieran Scott

pp. 3-14

When Catholic schools hire teachers of religion, it is sometimes the case that the hirer and the hired may not be on the same page. Both may be under false assumptions with regard to the nature of the work. Teaching religion in Catholic schools across the globe does not have a well-defined existence. But, at the same time, it is one of the schools most urgent needs. Teaching religion takes place in many Catholic colleges and secondary schools. It can also be found, to a lesser degree, in some of the better parishes. Primary school instruction in religion receives the most curricular attention and resources.
