    Over the weekend, I saw this article about public schools and parents. Maybe it's really parents vs. schools. This is from the Associated Press:Families opting for homeschooling, private schools and other options sent enrollment down sharply in the first full school year of the pandemic, and generally it has been slow to recover.In Houston, the largest district in Texas, enrollment tumbled by more than 22,000 to around 183,000 in fall 2021 and only about half of those students have returned. The district was shielded from making cuts in the first two years of the pandemic by what are known as...

    NOTRE DAME, Ind. ( - A new survey conducted by Notre Dame reveals that the university named after "Our Lady" has continued to lose its Catholic identity, which one pro-Catholic, pro-Notre Dame group ascribes mainly to a lack of Catholic representation on the faculty. Church Militant reached out to William Dempsey, a Notre Dame graduate and chairperson of the board for Sycamore Trust, an organization of Notre Dame alumni and friends that seeks to protect "the school's formative heritage — its Catholic identity and its sustaining relationship to the Church." "The survey is statistically meaningless because the participants were not...

    After psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her in high school, news reports have characterized the culture of Georgetown Preparatory School as "booze-soaked," even "misogynistic." Georgetown Prep, Kavanaugh's all-boys school, responded to these characterizations in a powerful statement on Wednesday. The school admitted that teaching young men to live lives of virtue is difficult, but denied the ugly insinuations that Georgetown Prep has fostered a bad culture of drunkenness and sexual assault. "The temptations, and the failings, presented in these stories are not unique to Georgetown Prep. The problems and abuses...

    An independent K-12 Catholic school in the San Francisco Bay Area has removed religious statues from its campus in order to appeal to those of other faiths.

    I was about to dip a nugget in some Chick-fil-A Sauce the other day when I received an urgent message on my phone. “Student Groups Shut Down Chick-fil-A Proposal,” one headline blared. “Catholic University Caves to LGBT Pressure, Rejects Chick-fil-A,” screamed another. A cavalcade of anti-chicken headlines blurted from my phone – but the most succinct came from Food and Wine magazine:  “Fordham University Rejects Chick-fil-A after LGBT Student Concerns.”However incredulous it may have been, the Jesuits had indeed banished the Chick-fil-A cows. As I pondered that reality, I nearly choked on a delicious, hand-spun Chick-fil-A Icedream milkshake topped off with whipped...

    Students at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. are hosting a “self-care” night for those who need to recuperate after the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump. A Facebook event page for “GUPride Self-Care Night” says the event, hosted by the Georgetown LGBTQ student organization GUPride, will have everything needed to deal with the trauma of a president they don’t support. Stuffed animals, Legos, and juice boxes to comfort those in need. Do you know anyone who suffers from Donald Trump derangement syndrome? Do you avoid talking about Trump in front of them?

[laughter]. I grabbed her by the [bleep] veil, and I’m like don’t you ever [bleep] hit me again you [bleep] sucker! I hate you!” Diaz then jokes about how he physically assaulted the nun: “I just grabbed her. I...

    The nation’s largest Catholic university told a group of pro-life students that it could not display posters reading “Unborn Lives Matter,” lest they provoke the Black Lives Matter movement. In a letter to the College Republicans, DePaul University president Father Dennis Holtschneider said the posters contained “bigotry” veiled “under the cover of free speech,” the Daily Wire reported. “By our nature, we are committed to developing arguments and exploring important issues that can be steeped in controversy and, oftentimes, emotion,” Mr. Holtschneider said in the letter. “Yet there will be times when some forms of speech challenge our grounding in...

    PARAMUS – Thousands of alumni of Paramus Catholic High School and their friends and family have signed an impassioned open letter to school officials chastising the school for firing a female dean who married a woman. The letter, written to President James P. Vail and school administrators, was issued days after a judge refused to throw out the suit brought against the school by former Dean Kate Drumgoole, who was terminated because she is in a same-sex marriage. It demands the school apologize and enact policies against sex and gender discrimination following the firing of a gay woman who has...
