"The section on PK-12 education research begins with a look at Canadian law, court decisions, and their impact/relationship to Catholic schools. Young and Ryan present an article that is both important for the Canadian context but also accessible for readers who live elsewhere. Moore's article, while focused on spiritual development in PK-12 schools, serves as a fitting companion article to Yacapsin's in the section on Higher Education, which focuses on faith integration in online higher education. These articles provide insights for both practitioners and researchers concerned with spiritual development and faith integration, which arguably complement each other.
"The second Higher Education research article addresses the sensitive issue of attitudes toward homosexuality on a conservative Christian university campus. LaFave, Helm, and Gomez present both findings and insights on the relationship between gender and heterosexual attitudes toward homosexuality. The issue closes with two scholarly essays. Addai-Mununkum interrogates the problematic history and practice of religious education in Ghana and provides insights for potential action to revitalize the field. Jackman, writing from Trinidad and Tobago, presents an analysis of both Adventist educational philosophy and contemporary best practices. He then evaluates the relevance of Adventist educational philosophy in the context of contemporary education."
