Reviews - What do customers think about Catholic Schools Then and Now?
A straightforward discussion and description of Catholic schools in the twenty-first century Aug 14, 2005
Written by a journalist and graduate of St. Mary's College, Catholic Schools Then and Now is a straightforward discussion and description of Catholic schools in the twenty-first century, intended especially for parents of all faiths who may be considering a Catholic school education for their children. Describing some surprising changes in the focus of Catholic schools - which are less "villain" focused today and emphasize love for all rather than the militant protection of the Faith in Protestant country - Catholic Schools Then and Now is filled with vignettes and answers from Catholic school teachers and workers concerning everything from religious beliefs taught to basic curriculum to responses to the September 11th attacks. A "School Compatibility list" of key questions parents are encouraged to ask of Catholic school administrators, such as "What complaints or issues has the parent group raised in the past five years?" and "What is taught about abortion/birth control/homosexuality?" is an extremely useful tool for illuminating whether a specific school is right for an individual family. An inset collection of black-and-white photographs rounds out this "must-read" introduction strongly recommended for anyone who needs to learn more about what Catholic schools are like today.
