Moog, François – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2019
It would be stating the obvious to assert that education, as it supports growth and allows for the promotion of the human self, necessarily hails from a humanistic perspective.

Boeve, Lieven – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2019
Rather than choosing between either catholic identity, or openness to otherness, the catholic dialogue school envisages, through the dialogue with the other, to stir the (re)discovery of one's own identity, and to introduce once again the Christian voice within the conversation. After introducing this project, I reflect more extensively on how to…

Malizia, Guglielmo; Pieroni, Vittorio – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2019
The fourth national survey on the teaching of the Catholic religion in Italy (2015-16) was not limited to state schools, but as in the previous (2004-05) also involved Catholic equivalent schools.

Sibley, Angus – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2019
In an earlier essay (Sibley, Angus. 2016. "Can there be a Catholic economics?" "International Studies in Catholic Education" 8 (2), 211) I observed that 'the Church has a long record of consistently criticisng the obsession with competition that has such a dominant place in orthodox economic thinking and practice'. Inordinate…

Aurora Bernardo, Maria; van der Nest, Theo; Smith, Lyn – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2019
The dual State-Catholic education model that secured the existence of many Catholic schools, especially after the Second Vatican Council, has made the role of principals more complex as they endeavour to balance their religious and educational leadership responsibilities. In Aotearoa New Zealand, the provisions of the Private Schools Conditional…

Sánchez-Tabernero, Alfonso; Torralba, José M. – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2018
This article describes the way in which the Catholic faith shapes education at the University of Navarra. The two aspects of the institution's identity, i.e. the Catholic dimension and the university dimension, are not juxtaposed and one is not favoured over the other. Rather, they work together and mutually reinforce each other. The article will…

Griffin, Marie – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2018
In the first half of 2007, Catholic Education an Irish Schools Trust (CEIST) was established when several Religious Congregations handed trusteeship of their schools to a lay company. As CEIST--in the Irish language the word 'CEIST' means 'question'--completes 10 years serving the needs of its 110 secondary schools, it seems an appropriate time to…
