Publication Date

2008

Abstract

This article presents the efforts of one Christian school to counteract secular societal norms and foster Christian values in its students. Anecdotal observations led to an empirical study to ascertain students' thinking about values. In turn, the study results led to the school staff taking specific actions to address the realities discovered in the empirical study. These actions include movement from pedagogies of transmission to pedagogies of participation and transformation.
