With the end of the 2010-2011 school year approaching for most area Catholic schools, I would be interested to hear from anyone regarding all the benefits that were to be gained from the closing of the 12 Catholic elementary and high schools.
As the closings were announced last March, we were told that this would make "a Catholic education more affordable for everyone who desires it."
Let me say that I just received my 2011-2012 tuition bill, and I can say that I am paying approximately 40 percent more for my son to attend his new school than I did for his previous school.
So, I ask Archbishop Edwin O'Brien directly: What were the real advantages of the school closings other than to line the pockets of the archdiocese with the cash generated from the sales of the properties with no regard for the children and their families whose lives you so callously affected with nary a comment?
