Highly-Valued Reasons Muslim Caregivers Choose Evangelical Christian Schools
Rumbaugh, Andrew E.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Columbia International University
This study investigated what were the most highly-valued reasons among Muslim caregivers for sending their children to Lebanese evangelical Christian schools. Muslim caregivers (N = 1,403) from four Lebanese evangelical Christian schools responded to determine what were the most highly-valued reasons for sending their children to an evangelical Christian school. The study found that the highly-valued reasons were quality of the academic program, teachers' qualifications, academic reputation, preparation for official exams, and teaching of moral values. Care for the student was also likely to be considered an important reason for Muslim caregivers. This study also found that attention to special learning needs, distance from the house, technology use in the classroom, openness to parent input, warmth of school atmosphere, and tuition and other school expenses were not likely to be considered important reasons.
