PRECHT PIZARRO, Jorge. ON THE QUALIFICATIONS OF TEACHERS OF RELIGION. Rev. chil. derecho [online]. 2008, vol.35, n.3, pp. 521-524. ISSN 0718-3437. doi: 10.4067/S0718-34372008000300006.
In both instances in trial courts was rejected the "action for protection of basic constitutional rights" (recurso de protección). It was exercised by a teacher of religion classes against the Vicar for Education of San Bernardo based on the revocation of her certification for teaching. Focus on the reasoning number eight of the decision of the San Miguel's Appellate Court, this comment refers to the modern trend of religious freedom thinking that promotes the cooperation between the Roman Catholic Church and the Government. Afterwards it treats what is to be understood by qualifications for being a religious teacher, recognizing finally to the Church a lawful independence and self-government to create its own rules.
