Excerpt

Research in Catholic education has been accomplished with very few outlets of high quality. For years the Catholic University of America provided an admirable service by publishing doctoral dissertations treating historical, philosophical, and timely practical topics in depth. Recently, the University of Dayton, the University of San Francisco, Saint Louis University, and Fordham University have launched a scholarly publication, Catholic Education: a Journal of Inquiry and Practice. It represents the major organ for research in Catholic education.

In the 1960s, the National Catholic Guidance Conference Journal succeeded the Catholic Counselor. Both no longer exist. The Catholic Educational Review, the Catholic School Journal, Notre Dame Journal of Education, and The Catholic Educator also no longer exist. the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) currently supports Momentum, and this journal and Today's Catholic Teacher constitute the principal publications for practitioners. the ncea has also provided a comprehensive summary of research in Catholic education by publishing 10-year updates. Over the years, doctoral-granting Catholic colleges and universities have been sources of research on Catholic education even though none can be classified as research universities. Summaries of recent doctoral dissertations in Catholic education have been published by the ncea.

The editors have sought to compile a handbook of research on Catholic education in areas such as philosophy, law, curriculum, Church documents, and so on. While handbooks on research have proliferated in recent years in public education, none have been attempted for Catholic education. the impetus for handbooks of research has been to acknowledge the existence of a knowledge base undergirding educational practice. the editors feel Catholic education deserves the same impetus.
