Since the establishment of St. Paul’s College, the first Western-like University in East Asia, Catholic education has had an enduring presence in Macao’s educational landscape. Filling the gap in educational provision during the period of Portuguese administration, Catholic schools still comprise 36.4% of the non-tertiary educational service delivery in the Macao Special Administrative Region.
Despite there being significant numbers of state maintained Catholic schools in England, they have proved to be of interest only to a minority of empirical researchers, usually those directly involved in their promotion. Recent government initiatives encouraging further provision of schools with a religious character have proved controversial and have prompted interest in their comparative academic performance.
Is open the call for papers to the EducA-International Catholic Journal of Education, issue nº 4 . This new issue will be dedicated to the theme “Reinventing the school: expectations and experiences”. The conditions of submission are described here.
Deadline until April 1st 2018, to the e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
