Erwartungen an die katholische Schule in einem postmodernen Zeitalter

Title variants
Languages of publication
Catholic schools are the subject of many expectations. Yet, the most important sets of expectations are three: parents, the Church and governmental institutions. Parents do not know any more what would be the best preparation for the future of their children, but they expect that Catholic school should prepare their children for their future jobs in the best possible way. The Church concentrates mostly on the religious role of Catholic schools and the governmental education authorities and institutions devote their attention to right attitudes in the civil society. Being a subject of so many, varied expectations, the Catholic school needs to respond constructively to these expectations and show a commitment to the integral and holistic education of every pupil in the postmodern and consumer society.
