Influence of Christian Churches on Schools in the Cayman Islands
Minott, Mark A.
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v19 n2 p116-133 2010
The purpose of this research was to identify the influence of churches on schools in the Cayman Islands and to employ the findings in making suggestions for Christian education in the Caribbean. A qualitative case study methodology was used. Research instruments included questionnaires, interviews, and observations. Teachers and students of three schools participated with the pastors of their associated churches. The churches' influence on the schools was revealed, and suggestions were made regarding: how churches can use their influence to help maintain and develop societal peace and stability via schools' personnel and curricula, how to fortify the continued use of church influenced behaviors in schools, and how to reduce incidence of student delinquency, which is on the rise in the Caribbean.
