School-Church/Synagogue Partnerships: A Comparative Case Study of Religious Capital Enrichment
Kaplowitz, Tracy
Journal of Jewish Education, v81 n3 p241-259 2015
The context for this study is the increased focus on school-community partnerships in the United States. With limited research having been conducted on high-achieving schools, this is a case study of one of America's top 100 high schools, a Jewish day school; this article reports on its school-synagogue partnership. Like most research on school-community partnerships, this study is based on the theories of capital reproduction. Yet, it is aligned with those claiming religious institutions as producers of capital, finding that these partnerships are effective at harnessing capital when explicitly designed for school members to experience the partnering institution's religious life.
