Vatican City, Feb 20, 2020 / 10:08 am
Pope Francis called for an educational revolution Thursday, telling the Congregation for Catholic Education that more effort needs to be made to accelerate the inclusiveness of education.
Ecology and fraternity are an integral part of education, Pope Francis told the Catholic education leaders ahead of the pope's Global Compact on Education taking place May 14.
"The educational pact must not be a simple order, it must not be a rehash of the positivisms we have received from an Enlightenment education. It must be revolutionary," Pope Francis said Feb. 20.
The pope said that the purpose of an "education that focuses on the person in his integral reality" is "above all" oriented "to the discovery of fraternity that produces the multicultural composition of humanity."
