Pastors' Views of Parents and the Parental Role in Catholic Schools
Frabutt, James M.; Holter, Anthony C.; Nuzzi, Ronald J.; Rocha, Heidi; Cassel, Laura
Catholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry and Practice, v14 n1 p24-46 Sep 2010
Over 300 years of official Church teachings and documents affirm the importance of the home-school relationship, yet relatively little research has systematically explored the need and value of parent involvement in the school community. This study is a secondary analysis of survey data collected for the Notre Dame Study of U.S. Pastors (Nuzzi, Frabutt, & Holter, 2008) and examines pastors' views of parents and the parental role in Catholic schools. The article closes with recommendations for action based upon analysis of the quantitative and qualitative data trends from pastors' responses. (Contains 4 tables, 2 figures and 2 footnotes.)
