American Catholic Schools for the 21st Century: Reflections on the Future of American Catholic Elementary Schools. Volume 1.
Kealey, Robert J., Ed.
Catholic schools in the United States today are very different from the Catholic schools that first opened in the 18th and 19th centuries. This handbook is a call to action for all Catholic elementary schools, inviting and challenging all Catholic educators to plan for the future. The volume is the first in a series of handbooks containing essays on the future of Catholic elementary schools, asking, "What will Catholic elementary schools in the next ten years be like?" Contents include the following: (1) "Introduction" (Robert J. Kealey, Ed.D.); (2) "The Future of Catholic Schools" (Sister Barbara Davis, SC, M.A.T.M.); (3) "Looking to the Future with Eyes on the Past" (Jim Brennan, Ed.D.); (4) "A Dream That Cannot Be Deferred" (Elena Casariego Hines, M.A.); (5) "Build It Now" (Lorraine Hurley, M.Ed.); (6) "St. Mary's School" (Sister Mary Ann Governal, OSF, Ed.D.); (7) "Reflections on Catholic Schools for the 21st Century" (Patricia Cantieri, M.Ed.); (8) "Translating from One Century to the Next" (Sister Joseph Spring, SCC, M.A.); and (9) "Creating a School for the 21st Century" (Sister Antoinette Dudek, OSF, Ed.D.).
