And another great thing about the Catholic Church our schools are so good...

…non catholic mil­lion­aires help fund them:

I’m not Catholic,” says Grauer. “I grew up in a house­hold that was Pres­by­ter­ian and Epis­co­palian. My mother was one and my father was the other. I don’t really remem­ber who was which. I went to Sun­day school at both places, but these days I don’t spend a lot of time in church, I’m ashamed to say.”

But,” Grauer quickly adds, “what I care about is the kids. I want to make sure they have an oppor­tu­nity to get a good edu­ca­tion. I believe that the deliv­ery mech­a­nism in Catholic schools is really good. It equips these kids to ulti­mately go on to higher edu­ca­tion and become pro­duc­tive cit­i­zens — maybe even work for Bloomberg. I don’t think too much about whether a school or a donor or a stu­dent is Catholic or non-​Catholic. I just think about ral­ly­ing the troops to raise as much money as we can to make sure these kids have a decent opportunity.”

Catholic edu­ca­tion is a lot more expen­sive than it used to be, when my older broth­ers and sis­ters when to St. Anthony’s more than half of the teach­ers were nuns. When I went there were only 3 nuns left. When my sons when there were no classes were taught by nuns. That means lay teach­ers who have to make a lay living.

“But,” Grauer quickly adds, “what I care about is the kids. I want to make sure they have an opportunity to get a good education. I believe that the delivery mechanism in Catholic schools is really good. It equips these kids to ultimately go on to higher education and become productive citizens—maybe even work for Bloomberg. I don’t think too much about whether a school or a donor or a student is Catholic or non-Catholic. I just think about rallying the troops to raise as much money as we can to make sure these kids have a decent opportunity.”

Catholic education is a lot more expensive than it used to be, when my older brothers and sisters when to St. Anthony’s more than half of the teachers were nuns. When I went there were only 3 nuns left. When my sons when there were no classes were taught by nuns. That means lay teachers who have to make a lay living.
