Christian school named Jesus as executive manager

A fundamentalist Christian school in Norway has been criticised for listing Jesus Christ as its executive manager.

Norway’s Labour Inspection Authority is also unhappy with the work conditions at the private Skjaergard’s School, reports VG newspaper.

An LIA report says the church’s organisation chart provided no insight into the group’s management, other than deputy leader Pastor Rasmussen and executive leader Jesus Christ.

The authority could not find details of any principal or teachers in the school’s system and no officers in charge of health, environment or safety.

Senior inspector Gunn-Elise Lyngtveit Ramlet said: “We at the Labour Inspection Authority naturally cannot go to the spiritual world to contact those with chief responsibility for the health, environmental and safety work at the school.

“I am not trying to ridicule the school, but if something were to go wrong at a school like this, the lines of responsibility have to be properly drawn.”
