Administrative Problems of Catholic Schools From 1840 to 1900
Catholic education in the United States may be divided into two great periods, each having its own peculiar problems. The first extends: from colonial days to 1840; the second from 1840 to 1900, when Catholic education ceased its tremendous unorganized growth and became centralized in a diocesan school system. The former period, prior to the great influx of Catholic immigration, was an era of individual initiative, the latter was characterized by a phenomenal growth of schools in an effort to meet the demands of an ever-increasing Catholic population.
