Religious education and the problem of faith commitment in Zambia
MetadataShow full item record
The problem of faith or religious commitment versus neutrality in the theory and practice of modern RE is still far from being resolved at least in as far as it affects societies that are still becoming plural ,multi-faith and multi-cultural. This article discusses the problems of the RE teacher's faith commitment and neutrality with reference to one such society, Zambia. The article first attempts to briefly define the concept of education. It then argues that both dogmatic religious commitment and strict professional neutrality by the teacher are untenable. It purposes a middle path approach, professional religious commitment as one possible way.
