New research examines the impact of Evangelical Protestant education on emphasizing generous attitudes and behaviours within their graduates.
Did you know that evangelical protestant graduates demonstrate a greater willingness to be generous and a sense of social solidarity?
Read the latest Cardus Religious Schools Initiative research report, authored by University of Notre Dame sociologist Dr. David Sikkink, which explores the journey of Catholic and Protestant Evangelical high school graduates as young adults. This is the third paper released in this series.
This report examines the correlation between religious school attendance, pro-social attitudes, and civic involvement. Are religious school graduates more like to vote, attend a community meeting, or engage in some other action that contributes to the common good? Author David Sikkink at the University of Notre Dame examines these issues through an analysis of a major American longitudinal data set.

The latest Cardus Religious Schools Initiative research report, authored by University of Notre Dame sociologist Dr. David Sikkink, explores the journey of Protestant Evangelical high school graduates as young adults.
The report reveals the strong, measurable, and positive influence on gradates’ level of regular church attendance, personal prayer, and Bible reading.
And it helps bust the myth that attending a Christian high school will turn people off from their religious faith when they enter adulthood. Instead, that faith identity grows stronger and graduates display strong involvement in church leadership, volunteering, and giving.
A Canadian Christian school has been ordered by a public school board that it partners with to refrain from reading or studying “any scripture that could be considered offensive to particular individuals.” Included are passages from the New Testament that speak against fornication, adultery, idolatry, and witchcraft.
