THE TEACHING OF RELIGIOUS AND MORAL EDUCATION IN A MULTI-RELIGIOUS AND A MULTI-CULTURAL ENVIRONMENT: THE NAMIBIAN CASE

J H Hunter

Abstract


With the introduction of a secular constitution in Namibia, it was also obvious that Biblical Instruction could not be taught at schools as though the Christian religion enjoys a privileged status in the country. Religious and Moral Education was introduced in the schools instead, and apart from being radically different in contents from the Biblical Instruction syllabi, a new approach to teaching was also introduced. A dialogue model replaced the instructional model in the hope that this will draw more interest from the learners in the schools.
