From Religious Garb to Business Suits: Examining the Ways Lay Principal’s in Catholic Secondary Schools Preserve the Identity and Advance the Mission of Catholic Education

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Catholic Education has experienced dramatic shifts in its educational leadership since the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), the historic convening of the Roman Catholic Church which led to a paradigm shift in how the Catholic Church operated in the modern world. Specific attention was paid to the role of laity in the Catholic Church and the function and future of Catholic Education within the institution of the church (Hunt, 2000). While the purpose of schooling remains distinctively Catholic, principals in secondary schools are faced with unique challenges. The first is maintaining an affordable education for families of lesser means (Carper & Hunt, 1993). Next is the question of enrolling a substantial number of students who are not members of the denomination as a means to support the school and / or to embark “on market, consumer-driven strategies” in order to preserve the institution without risking religious identity (Carper & Hunt, 1993). These two issues in particular challenge the way principals engage in Catholic education raising a critical question into how lay principals construct their identity as Catholic educational leaders. The purpose of this study, therefore, is to utilize a case study approach to examine the ways three lay principals preserve and nurture a “Catholic” culture in a secondary school setting.
