"What do I think of Catholic schools?" is a complicated question for me. With our decadent culture the way it is, then I think Catholic schools are a must. However, they're not affordable around here. They're private schools for the elite. As for the quality of the education, well since we could never afford to send our children there, I don't know; they are at least equivalent to the public schools, from what I read. Another thought, many homeschool their children. Again, money wise, that's out of the question, I think for most people. Families need two parents working just to survive. The parents who do homeschool own their own beautiful homes. I don't think a family living in subsidized housing could afford to have one parent stay home to home school. So as I see it, Catholic schools are definitely necessary, just not feasible. It's very unfortunate, because I went to both public and parochial schools. I also taught in a parochial school. I had not only good experiences there, but wonderful experiences. I support Catholic schools wholeheartedly, just not as they exist today.
