His Beatitude Sviatoslav encourages parents to advocate for a program of Christian ethics in schools
The Head of the UGCC told that a question of teaching Christian ethics at schools was a number one priority to discuss during all meetings arranged between All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and Ministry of Education.
Previous chairmen of Ministry of Education considered it unnecessary to have a separate lesson, alternatively, all disciplines which are taught must include worldview aspect based on some values. An education reform has been carried through for it. However, we were discussing the need of a separate lesson with a goal to raise up children up to some values. We haven’t reached an agreement so far, yet the minister promised us to stay open for a question of Christian ethics”, said the Head of the Church.
His Beatitude mentioned that Christian ethics is a sort of inter-confessional product. AUCCRO, in due time, has agreed to make it a common platform where all participants base their presence in an educational system.
