A volume in Research on Religion and EducationSeries Editors Stephen J. Denig, Niagara Universityand Lyndon G. Furst, Andrews UniversityThis book is a study of the contributions of Catholic K-12 schools in the United States to the public interestfrom the 1800's to the present. It presents seven strategies that have the possibility of leading Catholicschools in positive, new directions. Outsiders often misunderstand the mission, purpose, and inclusivity ofCatholic schools. This book brings a new focus on Catholic schools from the perspective of their service tothis country through the education of Catholics and non-Catholics. In 16 chapters, a variety of scholarsexamine these schools across three periods: echoes of the past, realities of the present, and futuredirections.The intention of the editor and authors of this volume is that Catholic schools and those interested inconducting Catholic school research will find guidance, especially in examining newer types ofpartnerships flourishing in different types of Catholic schools in different regions of the country and types of schools from rural, suburban to city andinner-city schools. By increasing the data we have, such studies could help stem the tide of Catholic school demise.In addition, Catholic school leaders, and parents who chose them or are thinking about choosing them, will find here a balanced description of whatconstitutes a Catholic school and how they are different from public schools. In understanding better the role and function of Catholic schools inserving the public interest, new ideas, innovations, and improvements can help these schools survive and grow.
