Abstract

[This opening quotation captures the prevailing Catholic perspective on human nature during much of the period under consideration. It was also the dominant perspective influencing the approach to Catholic education, including that overseen by teaching brothers. This is not to overlook the fact that in many countries Catholics were educated within a Catholic school system structured along lines reflecting that of the corresponding state system, with a primary school level and a secondary school level existing as two distinct phases. To maintain credibility among the general public, Catholic primary schools normally adopted the various syllabi prescribed for state schools, with their emphasis on reading, writing, and arithmetic. Generally, as with their state-run counterparts, Catholic secondary schools also prepared students for national, or state-wide, public examinations in order to obtain the credentials that were the gateway to public service and other white-collar positions and, in turn, to social mobility.]
