Abstract (copy 1)

Christian  teachers  in  public  schools  are  provided  an  opportunity  by  the  First
Amendment to pursue a specific and active work to promote Christ. This must
stop short of proselytizing yet does extend beyond teaching moral values or living
as a silent witness. The parable of the sower provides the framework for exploring
how this Christian mission of public school educators requires critical considera-
tion of culturally held expectations of schooling in order to educate students to be
inquisitive, rational, and to respect the value of intangible goods.
