In this study, first published in 1983, Robert Burgess discusses the definitions, redefinitions, strategies and bargains used in and out of classrooms by teachers and pupils in a co-educational Roman Catholic school where he spent some time as a researcher and part-time teacher. He also looks at the role of the school's headmaster, and his conception of the school, and at the house and departmental staff.
This absorbing study will be of interest to teachers and students of sociology and education, practicing and prospective school teachers, researchers, administrators, policy makers and others who are concerned with schools and schooling.
This book is divided into four parts. In Part One the author considers the natural factors which have influenced the various national systems of education. They comprise racial, linguistic, geographical and economic factors. In Part Two he considers the contribution of religious traditions to education, more particularly those of the Catholic and Puritan faiths, and in Part Three the secular traditions of humanism, socialism and nationalism. Finally in Part Four a comparison is made of the systems of education in England and Wales, the USA, France and the Soviet Union.

Third Place, Resources for Ministry categoryACP Excellence in Publishing Awards, 2012Third Place, Popular Presentation of the Catholic Faith categoryCatholic Press Association book awards, 2012 Paprocki s book is rich with information, wit, and wisdom and short on preachiness. It is said that practice makes perfect, but what else does practice make? If you ask Joe Paprocki, he ll say that practice makes Catholic that is, there are certain distinct practices that make us essentially Catholic. The problem is that many Catholics don t understand or at least misunderstand why we engage in the many practices we do. In "Practice Makes Catholic," Paprocki addresses the all-important why of many Catholic practices by articulating five key characteristics that form our Catholic identity: a sense of sacramentality, a commitment to community, a respect for the dignity of human life and commitment to justice, a reverence for Tradition, and a disposition to faith and hope rather than despair. Under each of these categories, he explores and explains multiple Catholic practices, then describes how following each one can make a profound difference in our faith and in our lives. Informative and inviting, Practice Makes Catholic is the perfect resource for RCIA candidates and their sponsors, for Catholics returning to the faith, and for all Catholics who want to get to the heart of what their faith is really about."
