Franken, Leni; Vermeer, Paul – British Journal of Religious Education, 2019
This article reflects on the place of RE in a pillarised education context, taking into account the fact of religious diversity and pluralisation among the school population on the one hand, and the freedom of religion and education of faith-based schools on the other.

Franchi, Leonard – Religious Education, 2013
The publication in 2011 of "This is Our Faith" (TIOF), the Catholic Church in Scotland's syllabus for religious education in Catholic schools, is a significant contribution to wider debates on the appropriate conceptual framework for religious education. Recent teaching of the Holy See has suggested that religious education in Catholic…

Miserandino, Anthony – British Journal of Religious Education, 2019
The Catholic school system in the United States is undergoing significant changes in size, populations served and the funding models which have traditionally supported such schools.

This paper summarises a doctoral research project aimed at identifying the dominant theological motifs that…

Schuttloffel, Merylann J. – Catholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry and Practice, 2013
There is a clear understanding that leaders of faith-based educational institutions shape the school community's culture in ways that assist in faith formation. This implicit and explicit focus on faith formation and an alignment with the broader mission of the Catholic Church is foundational to contemplative leadership (Schuttloffel, 1999, 2008).…

Waggoner, Michael D., Ed.; Walker, Nathan C., Ed. – Oxford University Press, 2018
From the founding of Harvard College in 1636 as a mission for training young clergy to the landmark 1968 Supreme Court decision in "Epperson v. Arkansas," which struck down the state's ban on teaching evolution in schools, religion and education in the United States have been inextricably linked. Still today new fights emerge over the…

Thompson, John – ProQuest LLC, 2011
Over the past 45 years, there has been a dramatic decrease in the number of religious and priests working in Catholic schools in the United States. Currently, 96% of all elementary and secondary faculties are comprised of lay men and women (McDonald, 2010). This same phenomenon can be found in Marianist-sponsored secondary schools in the United…

Ognibene, Richard T. – Journal of Catholic Education, 2015
Catholic educational historians note that although preserving Catholic identity has been a constant in the mission of Catholic schools, their curriculum and instructional practices evolved in ways that were similar to public schools, thus enabling Catholic parents to select schools that were both faith based and modern. Since there is an absence…

Proehl, Rebecca A.; Starnes, Heather; Everett, Shirley – Journal of Catholic Education, 2015
During the past decade, Catholic leaders have been exploring options to revitalize the faltering Catholic school system especially in urban centers.

In recent years, the social benefits (or otherwise) of faith-based schools within the state-maintained system have become a matter for public discussion. Following the introduction of a new statutory duty placed on the governing bodies of maintained schools in England under section 38 of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 to promote community…

Morris, Andrew B. – Policy Futures in Education, 2012
Around thirty per cent of all schools in England have a religious character. The author argues that the current "faith schools debate" is more about the nature of its "plural society" than about the place of such schools within the state-maintained sector. He suggests that to assume we are, in fact, living within a determinedly…
