So, I’m currently looking for teaching jobs, and a local Catholic school has an opening that would be a good fit for me. As it happens, I am myself Catholic. Now, I expect that a Catholic school might have a preference for hiring Catholics, but I also expect that they’re probably not allowed to ask about religion directly. But would it be a good idea for me to let them know without asking? I’m thinking that I might, for instance, list my pastor as one of my references.
Is this a good idea, or is this the sort of thing where they’d officially rather not know for the sake of covering themselves?
