Catholic High Schools and Their Finances 1990.
Guerra, Michael J.; Donahue, Michael J.
This statistical report discerns and analyzes financial trends in Catholic secondary schools. The report is based on a randomly selected and stratified (by region and size) sample of 222 responding schools out of an initial sample of 500 schools. Characteristics examined include the grade composition, near-term plans, gender compositions, administrator salaries, academic tracks, clergy/religious and lay teacher compensations, teacher organizations, pupil-teacher ratios, student characteristics, admission standards, facilities, parental involvement, finances, development program incomes, and governance/external relations. Thirty "exhibits" are used to illustrate information. The salaries and stipends of administrators and teachers have increased, and many schools have generated fairly successful, multifaceted development programs. A profile of the average Catholic high school is given in appendix A. Appendix B contains seven tables that summarize the research sample by governance, region, and enrollment. Appendix C names all the schools that participated in the study. The financial survey sent to all the schools is given in appendix D. (MLF)
