遗产 & 历史
Saint John Baptist de La Salle (1651-1719)
Opened his first school in Reims, his birthplace in northeastern France, in 1679.
他相信，如果没有基督教学校，一些贫穷的孩子将会失去教会和公民社会. 他最初的努力使他把那些他已经获得服务的教师组织到一个叫做 Brothers of the Christian Schools. de La Salle用以下原则激励了这些老师:“因此，你应该对他们怀有极大的柔情，尽你最大的能力满足他们的精神需求, 视这些孩子为耶稣基督的成员和他深爱的人”(圣. 尼古拉斯). Over a period of thirty years, 他在法国的几个城镇开办了学校，与来自不同社会经济阶层的众多教师和学生合作. By the time of his death, he had founded different types of educational institutions: primary schools, teacher training centers, 寄宿学校, and homes for delinquents.
Alert to the needs of his time, 他在教师培训项目的发展以及课程和教学实践方面是一位创新者. Teachers ranked with servants in seventeenth-century France. de La Salle, 然而, 认识到教师与孩子的关系是天赐的和充满恩典的. Because of the special dignity of this calling, he provided teachers with extensive pedagogical preparation and ongoing supervision. In consultation with his teachers, de La Salle设计了课程，编写了充满福音价值的实用有效的教科书. de La Salle was one of the early Catholic proponents of universal education. Although de La Salle’s schools were primarily for the poor, they attracted children from families of different economic backgrounds. 然而，他丝毫不容忍当时的社会隔离做法. 他为不同社会和学术水平的学生制定了统一的课堂教学管理程序.
de La Salle认为学校是一个信徒的社区，他们通过合作来实现共同的愿景. de La Salle设想教师是恩典的牧师，他们每天通过教导年轻人福音的原则以及各种学术和职业科目来行使他们的使命. 因此，他的老师帮助年轻人致力于福音的教导, to develop loyalty to the Catholic Church, and to prepare themselves for productive citizenship.
德JDB电子是一位多产的作家，他的教育思想体现在他的几部重要著作中:《JDB电子夺宝》, Meditations for the Time of Retreat, and the Conduct of Schools, as well as in the textbooks he wrote for students. 他对天主教教育的贡献使教皇庇护十二世在1950年宣布他为教师的保护人.
今天's Lasallian Schools
These schools differ greatly in terms of clientele, curriculum and methodology as well as in social and 文化 conditions. These schools are unified in the Lasallian heritage.
拉萨里的灵性根植于德拉萨勒的“双重思考”，即我们渴望与上帝永远在一起，以及穷人和边缘化人群在实现这一目标时所面临的挑战. Thus, Lasallian spirituality is:
- rooted in the school as an instrument of Divine Grace
- focused on the relationship between the teacher and the student
- inspired by the salvific potential of a human and Christian education
In harmony with Lasallian Spirituality, three essential characteristics form the core of the Lasallian School:
- Teaching viewed as a ministry of grace;
- 协会, 这是, 透过教师共同努力，分享福音的异象和价值，以达到学校的目标;
- The effective management of the schools so as to achieve the intellectual, 文化, 宗教, 以基督教价值观为基础，通过适合学生需要的课程，培养学生的职业素养.
