I don't know how long a posting stays open, but the debate continues about how to educate your kids in a "Catholic" environment. I homeschooled for nine years and stopped because I had a child that needed structure. I placed them in one Catholic school and had an extraordinarily bad experience, so I moved to another. Last week, my children came home with information on a "service" project to raise money for Susan G. Komen Foundation. Appalling.
The question is valid - do good Catholic families stay and try to change the system or leave and create a pocket of purity. The problem is that they do grow up and have to leave the nest eventually, so preparing them to handle the various situations.
I have found a really great Catholic high school in my area that gave the Catholic environment that we were hoping for. A Kairos retreat brought them closer to their Catholic friends.
I guess I lean towards staying to fight.
