This book is about the meaning of Catholic education. It is not a book only for practising Roman Catholics but is a resource for anyone who wishes to explore how education is to be understood from a Christian perspective. It sets out a vision of education that is, or that ought to be, embodied in a Church School (especially but not only in a Catholic school). Its primary concern is religious and moral education, not only as subjects in themselves, but as the foundation of the entire educational process. The project, of which this book is the centre-piece, grew out of the experience of the authors, and in particular from their discussions with students, teachers and school leaders.
