Issues of Aid to Nonpublic Schools. Volume II: The Social and Religious Sources of the Crisis in Catholic Schools.
Donovan, John D.; And Others
The more important factors responsible for the contemporary crisis in Catholic schools throughout the United States are identified. The identification is made through discussions of the following topics: (1) An overview of the socio-historic and socio-religious forces responsible for the establishment and growth of the Catholic elementary and secondary school systems; (2) A nontechnical description of the existing Catholic school system in terms of its basic units, policy and administrative structures, financing, and staffing; (3) A statistical delineation of the more conspicuous symptoms of the Catholic school crisis in retrospective and in prospect; and (4) An analysis of the social and religious forces, specifically the nexus between demographic, economic, social, and educational changes and significant changes in the American religious mentality and in the goals and structures of Catholicism since the watershed of Vatican Council II.
