Gravissimum Educationis (Declaration on Christian Education)

October 28, 1965
Gravissimum Educationis (Declaration on Christian Education) is a declaration released during the Second Vatican Council in 1965 that primarily addresses education, particularly by the Catholic Church. Gravissimum Educationis reaffirms the Church's commitment to provide a Catholic education for children at every level (from primary school to universities). It argues that every person has a right to an education, including a religious one, and that the Church has a responsibility to educate in both religious and secular terms. The declaration also states that it is the responsibility of the parents to educate and create an atmosphere of learning about religion, secular subjects, and civic virtues. In addition, Gravissimum Educationis calls for moral teachings in public schools and the placement of Catholic schools in and for non-Catholic regions.
