I **know** how little it takes in terms of money to educate a child.

I know I have read quite a few or your rants

If the Catholic children in you diocese are not getting a free Catholic education it is because the bishop lacks imagination on how to get it done. ( or prefers to see kids going to godless government school.)

His name is Bishop DeLorenzo of the the Richmond Diocese, give him a call, tell him exactly what you think, and get back to us.

My suggestion? He should get a bunch of homeschooling moms and dads together and they should do some brainstorming. They have the buildings at least, I know how much curriculum costs and how many kids can use it from year to year. All that is lacking is money to pay the teachers.

You must have missed the part where I said we live in an economically depressed area and that most families have both parents working JUST TO MAKE ENDS MEET

Gee!! Do you think some might consider it a calling and teach for gas money or even for free?

I have always considered teaching a calling, are you going to pay my rent, utilities, food, car payment, etc....?

I noticed that you ignored the part about the Single parents in the urban areas, hmmm why is that?

It is very easy to spout off when you ignore the facts, try dealing with them.

My husband and I just drove through Wichita last spring. ( We were visiting my daughter in Texas. Wichita does **not** look all that wonderfully prosperous. (Plenty of Mexican legal and illegal immigrants around too.)

It seems to me that Wichita, Kansas, has been blessed by a very optimistic bishop.

By the way, my tag-line reads: “Good ideas win! Why? Because people are NOT stupid”. Free Catholic tuition is a **GOOD** idea!
