Clearly the future of Catholic education is not going to be in parish-based Catholic schools as was the case in a bygone era. The future will be in independently-run charter schools and in organizations such as the Chesterton Academy. For the bureaucrats, lawyers, and accountants who run our parishes and dioceses today, it’s all about pushing risk elsewhere. They’d rather be landlords than educators; being a landlord is staying safe and generates income. St. Ladislaus in Hempstead has rented its school to the local public school district for decades, and that’s hardly an isolated instance. Many parishes have become dependent upon rental income to survive. I guess in one regard this can be seen as an opportunity for enterprising traditionalists to offer a good, orthodox Catholic education to those who are unable to homeschool for whatever reason– and something that will be better than what the parish-based schools were offering anyway.
