BIBLICAL VALUES AND MULTI-RELIGIOUS EDUCATION IN PRIMARY SCHOOL: PROBLEMS AND PROPOSALS
AbstractThis paper focuses on an apparently inherent contradiction between the concepts ‘biblical values’, ‘Christian values’ and ‘multi-religious education’ in their application to a primary school situation. Some problems related to these concepts are discussed and it is argued that the existence of different value systems in a school community necessitates a special approach in drawing up curricula and implementing them in multi-religious schools. Tentative proposals are made in this regard in order to provide perspective on a newly developing situation in South African school environments.
