Real and Perceived Barriers to Church-School Partnerships in Rural Southeastern Mississippi
Presenters: Dr. Elizabeth Bailey, Dr. S. Brad Bailey and Dr. Jalynn Roberts
Join Dr. Elizabeth A. Bailey, a recent graduate of William Carey University’s School of Education, on Monday, February 26 as she shares work from her doctoral dissertation study on church-school partnerships in a county in rural Southeast Mississippi. The study provided a detailed description of what type of partnerships exist in rural Southeast Mississippi, real and perceived barriers to such partnerships, and how successful church-school partnerships might be initiated, sustained, and/or duplicated in South Mississippi. This proposed panel presentation would focus on real and perceived barriers to initiating, sustaining, and duplicating church-school partnerships in Mississippi.
