The Paradox of Catholic Education

The stabbing and death of a young student inside the grounds of a Catholic School in Brisbane is a clear indication of the paradox of Catholic Education. If this incident happened in a State School, then it would have been a different story.

The moral values of a Catholic School should be unprecedented. The values of the Catholic religion should be imparted unto the students for them to live Christian life model to other non-Catholic schools.

The timing of the incident, before school starts on a Monday, clearly indicates that the motive have been planned during the weekends. The students who are only 12 and 13 years old would already have some altercations the week before. Even then, if these students live the lives of a Catholic, hatred and anger should not have been in their minds.

Catholic School should make a review of their curriculum to better impart Christian values to the students.

To the victim, may he rest in peace.
