The challenges of Marist education in the country

20/11/2017: Chile

Marist educators met on Nov. 2 and 3 in Santiago de Chile to visualize Marist education in a context of cultural and social change within the country.

Directors, coordinators and educators of the 12 Marist schools of Chile participated in the “Marist Education Congress” the two days in which the country’s Marists celebrated the Institute’s bicentenary.

The meeting, which took place in the school “Instituto Alonso de Ercilla - Colegio Marista”, focused on three themes of the evangelizing educational model: pedagogy, evangelization and Marist school management.

Among the speakers was Brother Álvaro Sepúlveda, from the FMSI office in Rome, a graduate in education and religious education from the Universidad Católica Silva Henríquez, and in psychology from the Universidad Alberto Hurtado.

During his speech, he spoke about the challenges of Marist education from the perspective of human rights, focusing on three points: universal access to education, non-discrimination towards certain groups and respect in the context of learning.

The Conference presented the challenges faced by Chile, based on the recommendations made by the mechanisms of the Human Rights Council and the Committee on the Rights of the Child of the United Nations, and the educational challenges according to the message of the 22nd General Chapter.

With a total of 16,000 students, the Marist Brothers have schools in the Chilean cities of Santiago, Alto Hospicio, Las Compañías, Villa Alemana, Limache, Quillota FDE, Quillota IRA, Los Andes, La Pintana, Rancagua, San Fernando and Curicó.
