GCE Report and CEGRI

Following OIEC’s World Congress in July 2019, OIEC produced a series of publications that are part of its Catholic Education Global Research Initiative (CEGRI). The aim of the initiative is to fulfill one of OIEC’s core mandates, namely “to promote research on the specific contribution of the Catholic School in the field of education and on the school’s adaptation to the needs, realities and aspirations of its environment in which it is integrated.” The initiative also helps OIEC in representing Catholic Education in international bodies, particularly those concerned with education. Publications produced under the initiative are provided below. If you would like to join the initiative, whether as a researcher or practitioner who could benefit from applied research on Catholic schools, please contact us at secretary@oiecinternational.com. We would love to hear from you! 

Global Catholic Education Report 2020: Achievements and Challenges at a Time of Crisis
Catholic schools serve 62.2 million students globally at the preschool, primary, and secondary levels. By managing the largest non-governmental school network in the world, the Catholic Church play an important role in efforts to achieve SDG4, especially in low income countries. OIEC released in June 2020 its first Global Catholic Education Report. The report considers the global contributions of Catholic schools and the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis (the analysis of impacts and potential responses is based in part on a set of articles published in the Journal of Catholic Education). The report also includes a detailed statistical annex on trends in enrollment in Catholic schools in more than 100 countries with at least 10,000 students enrolled in the schools.
