New Publication - Latino/a Student Experience in Catholic High Schools

Carin Appleget, Timothy Cook, Ronald Fussell, Kelsey Philippe, Renzo Rosales, Thomas Simonds and I were part of a multi-disciplinary research team of Creighton University faculty in Education and Anthropology that explored the experiences and concerns of Latino/a students and their parents related to being welcomed and included in Catholic high schools in a United States diocese. We collected both qualitative and quantitative data in order to create a fuller picture of Latino/a experiences in these high schools. We make recommendations to advance the scholarship on best practices for including students of new demographic groups in Catholic high schools. The article was published in International Studies in Catholic Education.
