All over the country the Catholic Church is closing schools — except in Kansas. There, they took the opposite tack. They accept all students even if they cannot pay. The schools are full; the parishioners are giving a little higher percentage than those in the rich states. In some parishes the empty seats are filled at the cost of the child in that one seat ($300+). The Knights of Columbus or other donors cover the cost.
Why should only rich parishes get Catholic schools? All the schools should be put in the same system; if one closes they all close. The governors of these states should be given an ultimatum, that all the Catholic schools close, unless some aid or vouchers are forthcoming.
