Abstract

This study investigated the effectiveness of the Diocesan educational leadership in enhancing a denominational education philosophy in view of learners¡¯ holistic growth and development. Its aim was to find out if there was a ¡°Catholic environment¡± in these Church founded schools ¨C both in principle and in practice. The study took a case study of Catholic schools in the Greater Kampala District of Uganda. The study discovered that although in principle the Catholic Church highly espouses its denominational education philosophy, the practice is different. In this, the Church is especially betrayed by an apparent ineffectiveness of its Diocesan educational leadership in supervising its schools. Implications for both denominationalism and nationals¡¯ integral growth and development are discussed.
