Email William Jeynes
Dr. Jeynes is one of the nation’s leading researchers on the influence of religiosity, attending religious schools, Bible literacy, character education, family structure, and parental involvement. He has conducted meta-analyses and examined nationwide data sets examining each of these issues. His research has divulged, among other things, that when African American and Latino students are religious and from intact families, the achievement gap with white students disappears. He is heavily involved, along a number of dimensions, in getting the Bible as Literature taught in the public schools.
