Catholic Secondary Education: Now and in the Future. A Seminar.
National Catholic Educational Association, Washington, DC.; Dayton Univ., OH.
The major presentations given at a seminar on the current state of Catholic secondary education are recorded in this publication. The intent of the seminar was to establish a foundation on which to base consideration of Catholic secondary education's future. Among the issues explored in the seminar's eight major addresses were teacher and administrator development; organizational problems indigenous to Catholic secondary schools; key curriculum dilemmas; the effects of economic stagnation, ideological conservatism, computers, and telecommunication upon school purposes and practice; the assessment of religious education program effectiveness; and the relationship of the Catholic secondary school to the larger Catholic church. Tables presenting statistical information relating to Catholic education are presented in an appendix. (PGD)
