Christian Schools and Demographic Change: Two Case Studies
Huyser, Mackenzi; Boerman-Cornell, Bill; DeBoer, Kendra
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v20 n1 p4-27 2011
This article explores how two Christian school systems have responded to neighborhood demographic change. Researchers conducted interviews, attended meetings, and reviewed documents to explore two case studies--one of a school struggling to redefine its identity, purpose, and vision in response to demographic change, and another school that has redefined itself and developed a more diversified student and family base. Content analysis of interviews revealed several findings in three main areas: resistance to change, call for change, and readiness for change. (Contains 3 tables.)
