Quotes: Catholic Education

The Web site of the Institute for Catholic Educational Leadership, University of San Francisco, School of Education, has a large database of quotations on Catholic Educations.
Collectively, the quotations in this section represent the essence of Catholic teacher identity. They may be useful for general information regarding the content of the Church documents on education. In addition, they may serve as reflective pieces for teachers at faculty meetings, incorporated into paraliturgical services, inserted into newsletters to educate parents, and used as the basis for constructing a Catholic school's philosophy statement.
The database content can be divided into the following themes:
