The Catholic community and the integration of public and Catholic schools by National Institute of Education (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first paper presented here eight problems are addressed: (1) racial inventory of Catholic school students; (2) inventory of integration policies and programs; (3) minority faculty in Catholic schools; (4) desegregation strategy; (5) Catholic schools and public school desegregation; (6) Catholic schools and Hispanic Americans; (7) successful Catholic "magnet" high schools; and (8) the role of inner city Catholic elementary schools. In the second paper, five aspects of the problem minorities have in becoming part of American society while retaining their own identity are examined: (1) culture; (2) the experience of the early Church; (3) the Catholic schools as an integrating force; (4) the dimensions of the challenge to keep minorities in school; and (5) the response to this challenge. The third paper looks at the statement of the Catholic Church on integration, discusses the call to action and the statistics on integration in Catholic schools. It also examines the problem in the context of voluntary attendance and tuition costs, as well as an agenda for integration and the process of implementation. In the fourth paper, an overview of the Diocese of Columbus, Ohio, shows what is possible and what is working in the process of integrating Catholic schools. The fifth paper, "Lessons from Public School Desegregation," examines the impetus for desegregation, the constitutional base, class and a racist society, curriculum, educational quality, voluntarism in both the public schools and the Catholic schools, and research needs. The sixth paper discusses the Cleveland experience and its implications for Catholic schools. The last two contributions summarize the conference discussions. (Author/MC)

The Catholic high school, a national portrait by Washington, Dc National Catholic Educational Association( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Responses to an extensive survey by 910 (62 percent) of the head administrators at the 1,464 Catholic high schools in the United States provide the information presented in this report. The survey, containing 1,063 pieces of information in 14 sections, was designed to create a view of the resources, programs, facilities, personnel, and policies of Catholic high schools. Special scrutiny is given to how Catholic schools vary by gender composition (coed versus single sex), size, governance (parochial, interparochial, private, diocesan), and percentage of students from low-income families. Chapters 2-12 give a composite view of Catholic high schools, with each chapter focusing on a particular aspect of school life. Chapters 13-15 look at how school characteristics vary as a function of percentage of low-income students, gender composition, and operating authority. Chapters 1 and 16 are more thematic and interpretive. The appendixes contain the following additional information: (1) a list of consultants; (2) the survey instrument, instructions, and national summary data based on all 910 school reports; (3) a list of Catholic high schools that report having made significant achievements in each of nine categories; and (4) a list of project publications and procedures for obtaining additional data information.

Catholic high schools : their impact on low-income students by Washington, Dc National Catholic Educational Association( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study, the second of a two-part effort, examines how well staff and program resources are distributed to Catholic high schools that serve low income students. The study involved 106 schools. Nearly two-thirds of the students came from families earning less than $20,000. The first section gives background on Catholic education and describes the scope and purpose, methodology and sources of data for the study. It includes a profile of five low-income serving schools (lis). The section on schools discusses low-income students' access to educational resources, compared with other students, and compares lis with non-LIS Catholic high schools. Teachers, students and principals give perceptions on school climate in lis schools. The section on students provides information on 9th and 12th graders' values, religious beliefs and practices, life skills, and behaviors, with emphasis on differences that may be a function of race and family income. The next section discusses the motivations, attitudes, and perspectives of teacher in lis schools. The section on student outcomes examines the impact of four years of Catholic education on student learning and school characteristics, such as family background, student characteristics, school programs, and climate, that promote growth. Finally, a summary of the study and recommendations to strengthen lis schools are provided. Numerous tables are presented throughout the text. The student survey, teacher survey, administrative manual, and technical materials are appended. (Cg)
Integral education : a response to the Hispanic presence by Suzanne Hall( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An outgrowth of a series of hearings sponsored by the National Catholic Educational Association which revealed that many Hispanics do not feel accepted by the Catholic Church and cannot afford to educate their children in parochial schools, this report is designed to assist ministers in understanding and responding to the needs of their Hispanic students/families. Chapter 1 considers commonalities shared by all Hispanics as a group and diversities within the group, and presents demographic facts on population, age, education, family size, income, and employment. Chapter 2 describes Hispanic views regarding education and the Church, Hispanic faith and the concept of total dependence on God, and the meaning to Hispanics of family, person, hospitality, celebration, devotion to Our Lady, popular religious expression, language, and the law. Chapter 3 addresses integration of the Hispanic presence through inculturation, enculturation, and acculturation. Chapter 4 focuses on factors related to teaching the Hispanic student (teaching methodolgies, discipline, and language programs) and recommends a model. Chapter 5 discusses administrative concerns including preparation of professional staff, recruiting teachers, student admissions and enrollment, summer schools, fund raising, family-related requests by students, scheduling, parent education, sex education, pregnancy, the importance of symbols, multicultural education, group activities, female-headed households, cultural differences regarding the sense of space, church affiliation, and church attendance. Chapter 6 cites 65 resources dealing with Hispanic education and culture. Seven appendixes contain graphs, charts, and statistical tables as well as lists of major Hispanic feast days and of seminal religious and other figures in Hispanic history. (Nec)

Empowering catechetical leaders by Thomas H Groome( Book )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended to help catechetical leaders stay abreast of scholarship on Scriptures, students, and informed theology. The themes of its essays vary widely--from the vision of educating for the reign of God to the practicalities of how to constitute a parish committee for catechesis. The 10 essays are divided into 3 parts. Part 1, "The Foundations of Catechesis," examines the purposes of Christian catechesis, the principles of catechesis from ecclesial documents, and the processes of catechesis. Part 2, "The People of Catechesis," discusses the parish and family as catechist, the participants in catechesis, and the person of the catechist. The last section, "The Realities of Catechesis," explores the qualities and competencies of the catechetical leader and includes details on planning and improving parish catechesis, practicalities of catechesis, the general directory for catechesis, boards of education, canon law, religious-education handbooks, gangs and religious education, due process, privacy rights, the place of liturgy in catechesis, elements of catechetical planning, sources of catechetical leadership, the art of loving, and obstacles to a balanced spirituality. It is hoped that this book will provide catechists an informed and insightful treatment of all major aspects of their ministry. (Rjm)
