CWN Editor's Note: In a January 5 address to Italian primary-school teachers, Pope Francis called for an “educational alliance between the school and the family,” and encouraged education in ecological awareness. The Pontiff also said: “Christian teachers, whether they work in Catholic schools or in state schools, are called to stimulate in the pupils the openness to the other as a face, as a person, as a brother and sister to know and respect, with his or her history, merits and defects, riches and limits.”
