Canon Law, American Law, And Governance Of Catholic Schools: A Healthy Partnership, Charles J. Russo Dec 2009

Canon Law, American Law, And Governance Of Catholic Schools: A Healthy Partnership, Charles J. Russo

Educational Leadership Faculty Publications

Roman Catholic schools developed in the United States during the latter part of the 19th century partially in response to a significant wave of anti-Catholic sentiment that swept the nation. Consequently, Catholic schools were established as a kind of parallel system largely free from civil laws, as bishops, pastors, and other religious leaders were free to operate their schools largely under the Church's own internal juridical system, the Code of Canon Law. However, by the middle of the 20th century, due to a variety of demographic factors, the composition of Catholic schools began to change dramatically, particularly with regard ...

The Mission Of The Catholic School And Role Of The Principal In A Changing Catholic Landscape, Pat Coughlan Nov 2009

The Mission Of The Catholic School And Role Of The Principal In A Changing Catholic Landscape, Pat Coughlan

Theses

This research explores the mission of the Catholic school and the role of the principal in a changing Catholic landscape. The context of this research is set within a Catholic landscape of radical change. Declining allegiance to institutional Church and disintegration of parishes as a focal point for sacramental and community life are indicative of paradigmatic shifts in understandings of Catholic life. In spite of these changes, Australian Catholic schools continue to enjoy widespread popularity and steady growth in enrolments (McLaughlin, 2005; Smith, 2007). This changing Catholic landscape has implications for the way in which the Catholic school seeks to ...

In this paper Edward Papa propose a brief investigation of the main questions which arise when one places the Catholic Intellectual Tradition in battle with its most important opponents. There are two main opponents of the Catholic educational tradition. Pressing from the one side is the classical educational ideal of the ancient Greeks. Bearing in from the other is the contemporary liberal educational ideal.


Catholic Schools Seeking Authenticity In A Secular And Pluralist Society, Fulvio Frijo Aug 2009

Catholic Schools Seeking Authenticity In A Secular And Pluralist Society, Fulvio Frijo

Theses

This thesis reports on a case study of three Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Melbourne, Australia. It also provides an exploration of the contemporary Catholic school as it seeks to participate in the educational mission of the Church. Catholic schools are no longer institutions for the converted. Today their purposes are challenged by a contemporary demographic which finds little formal relationship with the institutional Church. Yet these schools still hold a strong enough attraction for parents to select them as their school of choice for their children. At a time when enrolments have never been higher, identification with the ...

Teachers' Perception Of The Purpose Of Classroom Religious Education In New Zealand Catholic Secondary Schools, Kevin Patrick Win Wanden Jul 2009

Teachers' Perception Of The Purpose Of Classroom Religious Education In New Zealand Catholic Secondary Schools, Kevin Patrick Win Wanden

Theses

The nature of Religious Education in Catholic secondary schools has generated significant interest since the Second Vatican Council. A number of theoretical approaches to classroom Religious Education have been used in Catholic secondary schools in New Zealand since the mid 1960s (Crawford & Rossiter, 1985; Groome, 1980; van Caster, 1965). The debate regarding the most suitable approach for classroom Religious Education at this level has largely settled on a Subject-Oriented approach (Larkin, 2006). In New Zealand there has been a considerable investment of resources in the development of curricula and textbooks (Finlay, 2000). However there has been little research about teacher beliefs concerning ...

Fuzzy But Not Warm: On The (Continuing) Descriptive And Analytical Inutility Of ‘Spirituality', Chad M. Bauman, Gene Gallagher, Davina Lopez

Scholarship and Professional Work - LAS

In her response, Nadine Pence helpfully turns the conversation towards actual practices in teaching and the array of practical decisions that have to be made in the classroom and on campuses when it comes to addressing "Big Questions" and students' aspirations and interior lives. Several dimensions of her argument are worth amplification.


The Senior Secondary School Live-In Retreat: A Study Of The Views Of A Sample Of Teachers From One Metropolitan Catholic Diocese About The Purpose And Practices Of Retreats, Rachele Tullio Jul 2009

The Senior Secondary School Live-In Retreat: A Study Of The Views Of A Sample Of Teachers From One Metropolitan Catholic Diocese About The Purpose And Practices Of Retreats, Rachele Tullio

Theses

Senior school live-in retreats, which could be described as intensive personal/spiritual development seminars, are a distinctive feature of the religious programs of Australian Catholic secondary schools. While research on the views of young people has confirmed the popularity of retreats with students (Flynn, 1993; Maroney, 2008), there has been no systematic study of how teachers understood the nature, purposes and conduct of retreats, and of what they regarded as 'successful' retreat work. This thesis reports a two part research program on live-in retreats. The first, documentary/historical phase of the study examined the spirituality background to retreats within Catholicism ...


The Specter Of ‘Spirituality’—On The (In)Utility Of An Analytical Category, Chad M. Bauman Jul 2009

The Specter Of ‘Spirituality’—On The (In)Utility Of An Analytical Category, Chad M. Bauman

Scholarship and Professional Work - LAS

I would like to make it clear that nothing in this article should be taken as a comment, one way or another, on the question of whether "spirituality" deserves a place in higher education. I consider that issue a distinct one, though no doubt in some ways related to the one I am addressing here, particularly since many of those authors who write about spirituality do so in order to argue for greater institutional and classroom attention to the spiritual lives of college students.

Conference on “Improving the Human Destiny"

This paper highlights two major issues of the time: Clash of civilizations as suggested by Samuel Huntington and the problem with secularization.

To resolve these issues, the paper suggests the adoption of “Universal Responsibility” brought forward by Dalai Lama and discusses the role of religious education to have it installed.

Nurture, Outreach And Beyond: Reconceptualising Lutheran Education For The Contemporary Australian Context, Meryl Ann Jennings Jun 2009

Nurture, Outreach And Beyond: Reconceptualising Lutheran Education For The Contemporary Australian Context, Meryl Ann Jennings

Theses

The origins and development of the Lutheran school system in Australia since the1830s were strongly influenced by the two powerful metaphors, nurture and outreach. This study investigated the ways in which these foundational metaphors have been reshaped over time in response to the changing social and educational environments as well as through the adaptations brought about by practitioner dialogue and innovation in practice. The study thus sought to develop a reconceptualisation of Lutheran education in the contemporary Australian educational context. While the two historical constructs underpinning Lutheran schooling have remained significant for the Lutheran church and its schools, the study ...
