Changes in Funding and Governance of Catholic Elementary Education in the United States
James, John T.
British Journal of Religious Education, v29 n3 p287-301 Sep 2007
Catholic elementary education in the US is undergoing a radical transformation in terms of its mechanisms of financial support and governance structures. This article explores the dynamics, dating back to the 1950s, that have precipitated these changes, provides a description of the new funding and governance models, and provides a limited assessment of these models gleaned from anecdotal accounts and the limited research that exists on them. Each novel model represents an adaptive response to the challenge of operating a Catholic elementary school within a system that precludes significant governmental assistance to Catholic schools. (Contains 3 tables.)
