The Interaction Effects of Parents, Spouse and Schooling: Comparing the Impact of Jewish and Catholic Schools.
Himmelfarb, Harold S.
This paper discusses the literature on the long-range impact of schooling and the types of effects that schools have shown. It compares data on the impact of Jewish schooling on adult religiosity with similar data from a study of Catholic schooling. Like previous studies on other types of schools, the main effect of Jewish schooling seems to be an accentuation of parental influences. This effect is diminished substantially if not supported by marriage to a religious spouse. However, on some types of religiosity, extensive Jewish schooling produces "conversion" effects, which persist even when preschool and postschool support are lacking. The implications of these findings are discussed. (Author)
