Brand new. Direct from the publisher. This book, with a Foreword by Archbishop Vincent Nichols, seeks to explain to both proponents and sceptics how the maintained Catholic sector originated, what it seeks to do and how it makes a positive contribution to society. The intended audience is general rather than scholarly (but extensive explanatory notes are provided for those who may wish to pursue the basis for the propositions put forward). The context is the diminishing understanding and practice of religion in an English society that is sometimes sceptical about the Church's presence within the educational system. It is hoped that the case being made will be of particular interest to School Governors, teachers and all those who value Catholic schools in particular, and church schools generally. Most importantly, it seeks to provide a summary of supportive arguments for the Catholic sector that may be of use to those whose task it is to present the case for Catholic schools in their local circumstances to others who may not have much sympathy with the existing dual system as seen from the perspective of voluntary sector providers.

Considers why the existence of state-supported Catholic schools has become a matter of controversy and seeks to explain to both proponents and sceptics how the maintained Catholic sector originated, what it seeks to do and how it makes a positive contribution to society. Commenting about the book, Archbishop Vincent Nichols said, All who are interested in the debate on the place of schools of a religious character will find this book of great interest. This will include those who lead, teach in and support our Catholic schools as well as those who are interested in the issues that feature in this debate and who are prepared to take on board the evidence and detail which should inform that debate itself.
