Privatize American Education - Jon E. Dougherty

I admire President George W. Bush’s intentions to “reform” the public school system in America, but these efforts are largely going to be directed by or defined by the federal government, and, after decades of so-called federally-managed education, it is clear that Uncle Sam has screwed this up royally.  Read more...

Program puts home and school at odds - J. Fraser Field

To make mandatory in the schools a program whose catechism is diametrically opposed to the understanding of most traditionally religious people, let alone most parents, is an outrageous challenge to the rights of the citizens and means that what many parents are teaching their children at home is being directly contradicted and undermined by what is going on in the classroom.  Read more...

Queering the Schools - Marjorie King

At a high school in prosperous Newton, Massachusetts, it’s “To B GLAD Day” — or, less delicately, Transgender, Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian Awareness Day. An advocacy session for students and teachers features three self-styled transgendered individuals — a member of the senior class and two recent graduates.  Read more...

Raise Children of Character - Thomas Lickona

When we do not set high standards, we abandon our children to their own immature desires and the pressures of the peer group and culture.  Read more...

Raising the Bar: How Parents Can Fix Education - Daniel Akst

Everyone, it seems, has a complaint about the schools. Indifferent bureaucracy, change-averse unions, faddish curricula, soaring school taxes matched with mediocre student performance -- the list is long and seemingly unchanging.  Read more...

Rationale for Non-Sponsorship - Rev. Robert Spitzer, S.J.

As the debate over Father Spitzer’s actions extended beyond the campus, the Gonzaga president submitted this op-ed column to the Spokane Spokesman-Review, which published it in slightly abridged form.  Read more...

Re-Learning To Say ‘Please’ And ‘Thank-You’ - Doug McManaman

As Catholic teachers, our attitude must be nothing less than one of grateful thanksgiving. If we are going to have any success in our schools, this is the disposition with which teachers have to learn to enter their classrooms.  Read more...

Reading the Church Fathers and Doctors - Randall Smith

In Culture and Anarchy, Matthew Arnold famously spoke of the importance of acquainting oneself with “the best that has been thought and said in the world.”   Read more...

Reflections on Catholic Education at the Millennium - J. FRASER FIELD

If Catholic students are not made aware of the great wealth they have inherited in terms of culture, they may well end up, as the great Catholic historian Christopher Dawson predicted, "divided personalities with a Christian faith and a pagan culture which contradict one another continually."  Read more...

Religion and Public Schools - Rod Paige

On February 7, 2003, Secretary Paige issued guidance on constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary and secondary schools.

Religion in Schools - Charles Colson

Working together, we can ensure that public schools are safe places for students to express their faith -- just as the U.S. Department of Education has affirmed and our Founding Fathers clearly intended.  Read more...

Religion in the Classroom - Gregory J. Rummo

Religion's influence in the world is pervasive. Even atheists will concede this fact. Therefore, a well-rounded education must include religion from the start. "An elementary school curriculum that ignores religion gives students the false message that religion doesn't matter to people — that we live in a religion-free world," write Warren A. Nord and Charles C. Haynes in their 1998 book, “Taking Religion Seriously Across the Curriculum”.  Read more...

Repentance and renewal in the mission of catechesis - Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap.

Repenting of the Failure of Parish-Based Catechesis - Barbara Nicolosi

It's long past time for the Catholic Church in the United States to acknowledge and address the fact that in many, possibly most, dioceses, parish-based catechesis has been an abject failure.  Read more...

Requiem for the Tiger Nuns - Richard & Elizabeth Gerbracht
