Catholic Schools vs. Government Schools

Terrence Jeffrey compares and concludes:

The truth is the primary purpose of the average American public school — like the Catholic school — is not to teach children reading and math. It is to develop character — to help assimilate students into the school’s vision of our civilization.

And here, even more than in reading and math, our public schools have become the leading indicator of national decline.

In the public schools today, children are not taught to believe that the traditional family is the indispensible foundation of our society, or that every human being — including those still unborn — has an inalienable God-given right to life, or that the United States of America enjoys an exceptional place in the history of nations because our Founding Fathers instituted a government that was constitutionally limited in its functions, leaving it to a moral and self-reliant people to thrive and prosper in a free society.

The liberal elites who generally define and determine what is taught in our public schools do not believe these things and do not want the children who graduate from the government academies to believe them, either.

Today, public schools are competing with Catholic and other religious schools, not just in developing the math and reading skills of their students, but for the very soul of America.

May the private religious schools win this all-important contest, too.
