EDU5150 Ethics in Education: Spiritual and Philosophical Foundations (3)
Students explore basic Christian foundations for teachers and school ad-ministrators. Since Christian teachers are part of the church, the course examines the nature of the church as a community where the focus is on others' best interest instead of self-interest. Furthermore, the course high-lights the fact that teaching is ministry and that teachers are ministers of God legitimately called to discharge an important service to students and fellow staff. Toward that end, students are encouraged to commit them-selves afresh to the priesthood of all believers as effective servant leaders in their teaching and administrative careers.
