Day #179: Gravissimum Educationis 11-12, Conclusion

Today we conclude the first of our conciliar declarations, the Declaration on Christian Education.

We close the document with a quick look at the importance of good teachers of the “sacred sciences” (i.e. theology) (article 11) and the importance of cooperation between schools (article 12).

We wrap things up in the conclusion with an exhortaion to students and teachers alike to take this great work of education seriously.
