Christian Religious Education in Kenya : An Assessment of the Evolution and Operation of the Western Missionary Ideology
This study analyses the problems of moral education within Christian religious education in Kenya. It focuses on the displacement of African traditional education by the Western missionary ideology. The latter's influence on Christian religious education is deeply rooted in official commissions, reports and teaching programmes. A separation of moral education from Christian religious education in Kenya is suggested. The moral developmental approach of Piaget and Kohlberg is proposed as a basis for this separate moral education.
