Catholic schools in the United States and abroad face numerous financial, cultural, and structural challenges due to contemporary education policies and economic trends. Within this climate, research about Catholic education is often conducted and leveraged in efforts to serve schools' most immediate needs. To be certain, research aimed at finding solutions to pressing problems is important--indeed, essential--to Catholic schools' survival. However, it is also important that research on Catholic education connect to larger questions, issues, and discourses in education--both private and public--in order to contribute important insights and bring otherwise marginalized voices to bear in contemporary educational debates.
