Innovation in Catholic Schools
Category : Newsletters
Here is the link to the Jan 14th newsletter.
This edition of Catholic School Matters is devoted to Catholic school innovation. I blog about my visit last month to Seton Catholic Schools in Milwaukee, a remarkable charter-like Catholic school network. It would benefit any school or diocesan school leader to pay attention to what’s going on there.
I then include descriptions and links to thirteen other innovative models: ACE Academies, Catholic Schools Center of Excellence, Cristo Rey, Faith in the Future, Drexel Schools, Healey Education Foundation, Independence Mission Schools, Jubilee Schools, Lumen Christi Schools, Nativity/Miguel network, Partnership Schools (NYC), Seton Education Partners, and TWIN-CS.
My top 5 all focus on Seton Catholic Schools (Milwaukee):
- Bill Hughes (the Chief Academic Officer) published three Guest Ed Week blogs last fall “Transforming Catholic Education in Milwaukee” “Talent Wins at Seton Catholic Schools” “The Era of the Textbook is Over” and “Guiding Questions for Successful School Transformation”
- Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel 2017 column “New Developments at 3 of Milwaukee’s More Interesting ‘Mini-districts’” and 2016 article “Seton Bolsters Catholic Voucher Schools”
- “The Catholic Schools Saved by Vouchers” in The Atlantic (Feb 2017)
