|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.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/51745||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
