WEB SITE TO HELP CATHOLIC EDUCATORS
ROME, JAN 26 (ZENIT).- Concerned about the growing secularism in public
school textbooks, which are often the only textbooks available for
Catholic schools as well, a group of educators, academics, and priests
has joined together to form the Catholic Educator's Resource Center
(CERC). The group works to identify areas of weakness in teaching
materials and to develop educational resources that fairly present the
Catholic contribution and perspective.
The group has set up a new web site ( http://www.catholiceducation.org/
) to provide resources to teachers, conveying the important role
Christian culture has played in history. Articles are drawn from a wide
range of journals and periodicals to provide articulate resource to
teachers explaining the Church's position on a broad range of social,
moral, and historical issues. The web site operates under a grant from
the Homeland and Madonna Foundations.
