Title: Disciplining differences : Christian teachers in the secular school.
Authors: Lee, Theresa Ruishan.
Keywords: DRNTU::Social sciences
Issue Date: 2013
Abstract: This paper explores how Christian teachers experience state policies towards religion in the education institution; the ways they manage religion and their personal faith in the teaching of Character and Citizenship education (CCE). The public-private divide is an artificial construct that serves to demarcate our social world. Multiculturalism, state secularism and the notion of a ‘common space’ are ideologies and mental frameworks that ensure religion remains privatized. This paper argues against the prevalent assumption that omitting and obscuring one’s faith is a form of suppression.Teachers have a belief that such manifestations can be negative and thus they actively engage in discipline work and inadvertently, are complicit in perpetuating the religious-secular divide.
