Abstract

The questions addressed in this book include:

  • What do teachers in Seventh-day Adventist Schools in Australia and the Solomon Islands believe is their mission?
  • What was the original motivation that led to the setting-up of Adventist schools in Australia and the Solomon Islands?
  • What aspirations do the current administrators have for Adventist schools?
  • What congruence exists between the original motivation, the current aspirations of administrators and the beliefs of teachers about their mission?

Adventist schools today are in-the-main funded independently of their parent churches and have substantial administrative autonomy. The research reported here provides evidence that teachers in Adventist schools in both countries hold views on the mission of their school that accord well with the goals of both the pioneers and current education administrators.

This book will be of interest to:

  • Teachers, school administrators, church administrators, church pastors and parents of students attending Adventist schools;
  • Academics interested in faith-based school systems;
  • Academics interested in the role of institutions in a growing church.
