Who Will Save America’s Catholic Schools?
A threatened legacy
“It is sometimes hard to understand why enrollment has dropped. After all, even the enemies of Catholic education – and, sadly, there are some who wish our schools would disappear altogether – grudgingly admit that Catholic schools are unparalleled in providing a first-rate education that also emphasizes character and virtue. I have heard from many leaders in business and finance that when a graduate from Catholic elementary and secondary schools applies for an entry-level position in their companies, the employer can be confident that the applicant will have the necessary skills to do the job.”
