About the book:

While numerous studies have documented the educational achievements of Catholic schools, this book offers the first extended look at Protestant schools, providing insight into why these schools are especially effective not only in gaining the loyalty of parents but also as measured by objective national standards.

By closely examining a variety of Protestant schools, education expert Steven Vryhof uncovers the complexities, subtleties, and nuances of faith-based education that often elude those concerned only with producing higher test scores, a "moral environment," or a competitive workforce. Through candid interviews with parents of children in faith-based schools, Vryhof also answers questions that other interested parents may have about the benefits of faith-based education for their own children.

Based on solid research, "Between Memory and Vision" presents a convincing case for placing faith-based schools on a more level playing field in today's academic marketplace.
