About this Item

248 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.6in.This longitudinal case study examined the origins, growth, and development of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The purpose of this study was to understand how these schools evolved over time. Four eras between 1833 and 2005 were investigated and described. Each era corresponded with changes to the physical size of the Diocese of Grand Rapids as well as sociological events that were also occurring. Data on Catholic schools were collected for each era. A conceptual framework was applied that considered the institutional environment in which the schools were founded and the task environment that affected how the schools functioned. Findings indicated that Catholic schools were organized in order to ensure that Catholic children would be instructed in their Catholic faith. These schools persisted because their emphasis became to promote and protect the ethnic cultures of these immigrants. As Catholics assimilated into the dominant culture the need for Catholic schools that protected a separate culture no longer existed. These schools continue to evolve and persist based on their environment. This story is similar to experiences throughout the midwest. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9783639010589

A conceptual framework was applied that considered the institutional environment in which the schools were founded and the task environment that affected how the schools functioned. Findings indicated that Catholic schools were organized in order to ensure that Catholic children would be instructed in their Catholic faith. These schools persisted because their emphasis became to promote and protect the ethnic cultures of these immigrants.
