CHRISTIAN SCIENCE AND THE SCHOOLTEACHER

Schoolteachers who are Christian Scientists have reason to be grateful, for Christian Science enables them to prove that there is not a school problem which cannot be solved if they obediently apply its rules.

In her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy gives the following as the spiritual definition of children (p. 582): "The spiritual thoughts and representatives of Life, Truth, and Love." The teacher who steadfastly holds to this concept finds an opportunity in every class for correct thinking about children. The so-called discipline problems, which to many teachers are the ogres that prevent successful teaching, vanish through the true understanding of God and His children. There is no disorder or inharmony in God, divine Love, and God's child, Love's representative, cannot express anything unlovely. A realization of this truth banishes the false sense of responsibility as well as the false sense of discipline, as that term is generally used in teaching.
