The Catholic School in Theory and Practice. NCEA Papers, Series 11, No. 5.
This publication ends by offering a self study booklet to assist those in Catholic schools in drafting a practical and effective statement of their school's philosophy. The chapters that precede it provide the background and context of the self study booklet. In this paper the "Catholic" dimension of the school's philosophy is especially emphasized and other dimensions are to some extent slighted. The first chapter discusses the four "faith-views" held by Catholics: the traditional, the conciliar, the reform, and the independent. The second chapter summarizes two National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) surveys of practices that had some relationship to the Catholic dimension of the school, ranging from religious instruction, to faculty, student, and parent interaction. Chapter 3 reports on several research findings that show correspondence between basic beliefs and attitudes and views on school practices. Chapter 4 presents ways to develop an effective philosophy for a Catholic school. (Author/MLF)
