Immigration and Pluralism in Urban Catholic Schools.
Cattaro, Gerald M.
Education and Urban Society, v34 n2 p199-211 Feb 2002
Investigates how Catholic schools are making the transformation from national to multicultural schools as they meet the needs of new immigrants in the inner city. Focuses on the concept of mediating institutions, investigating urban Catholic school principals' willingness to experience diversity. Mediating institutions such as Catholic schools help reduce apprehension, fear, and cultural stereotyping and create secure environments for expressing traditional values and lifestyles. (SM)
