Evaluating and Educating - 2000: Is Your Catholic School System Ready? Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School and Family Partnerships Survey.
Sandoz, Robert J.; Vadenais, Kim Rocha
Parents attitudes towards traditional Catholic education at Our Lady of Lourdes School (Raleigh, North Carolina) were explored in this study. From 315 surveys sent home to parents, 193 were returned completed. The survey was designed to gather information to improve the partnerships among schools, families, and communities and to prepare Catholic school leaders to satisfy the pedagogical challenges Catholic school students will encounter in the next millennium. The questionnaire contained nine questions and 75 statements that requested parents' responses to the following: (1) Parent attitudes toward their children's school; (2) school subjects parents wanted to know more about; (3) the frequency of various forms of parent involvement in children's education; (4) the degree to which school programs and teacher practices informed and involved parents/guardian in children's education; (5) the workshop topics parents would select; (6) times of day parents preferred school meetings or conferences; (7) the amount of time children spent on homework; (8) parents helping children with homework; and (9) background information about parents education, work, and family size. Respondents' attitudes toward the school were viewed as "positive." Concluding the study is the School and Family Partnerships questionnaire, results of the survey, and a 39-item bibliography. (LB)
