Greater governmental control over the curriculum, an increasing emphasis only on formalized and decontextualized knowledge and on education as instruction towards pre-determined outcomes, have revitalized the interest in the question whether schools should only instruct or also have a pedagogical task. In this contribution we argue that schools do have a pedagogical task. A transformative conception of education is presented in order to show that the pedagogical task, conceived as a concern for the whole person of the student, is the proper and all-encompassing task of education in all schools including religiously affiliated schools, and for all teachers. Finally, we articulate our contention that it is the teacher's task not to restrict the students' potentialities, but to create openings for them to encounter and receive the gift of personal (religious) identity formation.
