Religiosity, Cultural Capital, And Parochial Schooling



A volume in Research on Religion and Education
Series Editors Stephen J. Denig, Niagara University
and Lyndon G. Furst, Andrews University
This book examines whether or not and how personal religion associates with school cultural
capital. Specifically, on one level, the book offers insights and empirical data on who is choosing, teaching,
and working in parochial schools and what motivates them to do so in the schools, issues that still remain
largely unexplored in the educational research literature. In particular, it centers on the significance of
personal religion and commitment as a reason for choosing and serving in parochial schools. On another
level, the book is an attempt to enhance our understanding of the leadership orientation, school satisfaction,
teacher assertiveness and empowerment, educational aspiration, and parental involvement in parochial
schools, attributes reportedly essential for successful schools. Most importantly, at the heart of the book is an endeavor to estimate the influence of
personal religion on the development of these cultural capital attributes and to address its implications for parochial schools as well as the current
discussion on public schooling versus parochial schooling in the United States. To achieve these goals, the author will rely on first-hand empirical data
collected for this book or other related research projects and adopt various scientific methods for data analysis and interpretation.
The book shows that personal religion matters, but its impact is weaker than thought and is largely restricted to the students and parents in
parochial schools, rather than their educators. To the extent that parochial schools excel more than public schools, personal religion seems to be
responsible for the development of student and parent-level cultural capital such as parenting style and student desire for academic success and
favorable attitude toward school, yet it does not necessarily engender the growth of teacher and
administrator cultural capital. This result, to some extent, comes as a surprise but corrects and enhances
our understanding about whether or not and how religion affects academic achievement.
This book is an inquiry into the issue of school success and cultural capital, representing a
scholarly contribution to the fields of education, religion, psychology, and sociology. Both scholars
and lay people of education and religion will find this book a useful, informative, and insightful
reference and classroom textbook.
