Saint Cols Board Members Share Research About Hispanic Catholic Educators

A Boston College research team’s groundbreaking study of Hispanic educators in United States Catholic schools offers insights into the experiences of these teachers and school leaders and suggests pathways to increase the presence of Hispanic educators in Catholic schools—a critical issue given that more than 40 percent of the U.S. Catholic population is Hispanic.

The interdisciplinary study—the first of its kind to take an in-depth look solely at this particular sector of Catholic school educators on a national scope—was led by School of Theology and Ministry Associate Professor Hosffman Ospino and Melodie Wyttenbach, executive director of the Roche Center for Catholic Education at the Lynch School of Education and Human Development.
