The most interesting comment on the abve-linked article comes from “Sasha21038” yesterday:

“I went to Catholic school years ago and it definitely didn’t have alot of things public school had. My husband and I agreed we would send our kids to public. The oldest got to middle school and said “I want out”. This was really hard since we just got a bigger house etc. I took money out of our 401K and did everything I could so she could go there. Then we sent the next one there, as well. We drove an old car and sacrificed. I now tell my daughter it was the best decision that she made, and I am glad I listened. She was not a top student in public. She ended up getting into a great school on a full scholarship. We paid nothing for her college. Catholic schools have come a long way and the values and discipline they teach, take our kids a long way. I later taught in public schools, and was shell shocked at what is covered up and what goes on.”
