Extractions: On The Panel: Did She Or Didn't She-I Didn't By Amy Bouchard Morin It was very difficult for me to speak on how not going to Parochial School affected me. Since I didn't attend, I don't know. I can only work through it with words and see what comes out. I do know that I mostly liked the nuns that I had contact with. I attended CCD (Sunday school) after the 9 o'clock mass every Sunday until I was in high school, and then we had our CCD classes on Monday evening. Our classes consisted of learning from the Baltimore Catechism by rote...memorizing questions and the answers to them, and being able to spew them out the following week at CCD. I always studied my lesson and was a good spewer so I received a lot of little holy pictures (They were given by the nun each week if you knew your lessons.) You see my experiences were really quite good. I didn't have any Sister Hitlers in my life. I have spoken with Maman, who attended parochial school in Lille, as well as Mount Mercy Academy in Waterville. She said that most of the nuns were very nice. They were extremely strict (which is not news to anyone who knew nuns), but mostly they were fair and that she felt she received a good education. She remembers one of the nuns (who must have been quite young) would play ball or games with the children on the playground. That didn't last long because an older nun made her stop. Maman heard that the nun was told it wasn't dignified or appropriate and that she would lose respect. What a shame and loss for the children as well as the nun.

Extractions: by Carla Howell The Boston News Media relentlessly lobby for more government spending, more taxes, more government authority, and more government control. They also advance their egalitarian social agenda. They have a sizable ability to influence attitudes, elections, and government policy. Theres one large sphere of influence in Massachusetts that opposes the Boston News Media, at least on some issues: the Catholic Church. We should not be surprised that the Boston Globe and other media outlets in the state are exploiting the priest scandal to de-legitimize the Catholic Church. In the wake of the scandal, the Catholic Church has been forced to close parishes, and now parochial schools are on the ropes. Coverage of the Catholic Churchs failure to report and rein in abusive priests is certainly warranted. A call for justice for Catholic families was long overdue. But the Boston News Medias continual negative coverage of the Catholic Church is more than news reporting; it is lobbying and editorializing disguised as news. This is particularly evident when compared with their constant puffing of their prized Big Government Programs public schools among them.

The Massachusetts State Science Fair (MSSF) gives students throughout the Commonwealth a special opportunity to compete for college scholarships, awards, honors programs and other exciting prizes. But better yet, it brings them something even more precious: a valuable learning experience. Each year, young scientists from public, private and parochial schools (Grades 9-12) pursue specialized fields of science by working on individualized research projects, either as part of their core curriculum or through independent study. These projects broaden scientific awareness, and allow students to delve deeply into areas of their own special interests giving them a chance to explore, to gather information, to arrive at conclusions and to present ideas in a competitive public forum.

Can We Save The Schools Of Massachusetts? Can We Save the schools of massachusetts? Mass. News interviews Dr. John Silber of attending private schools or parochial schools. Thats very unlikely in the state of massachusetts, though not in http://www.massnews.com/past_issues/2000/Schools/silber.htm
Extractions: Paul Moreno Although many people believe they know exactly what Dr. John Silber thinks, his thoughts are always filtered by liberal reporters. It is rare for him to be able to speak directly to the citizens. Whether you agree with him or not, he will certainly make you think. Mass. News: Is public education finished in Massachusetts? Silber: No. I believe the ideal structure is a system of public education. The purpose of vouchers and the purpose of charter schools should be to create competition that will result in the improvement of the public schools. Vouchers could offer the opportunity of giving children the choice of attending private schools or parochial schools. Thats very unlikely in the state of Massachusetts, though not in other states, because of our constitutional prohibitions against the mixture of church and state. Those barriers are so high in Massachusetts that it will be difficult to work that out. The other difficulty with vouchers is that there are limited numbers of schools to which children can go. If they go to a private schoolI mean a non-religious private schoolor to a school in a different community, how are they going to get there? Theres no public busing thats going to pick them up and take them there. So the children who will be beneficiaries of such a program are children whose parents are better off than the other parents. So its the most privileged children who are going to be further privileged by most voucher programs. Thats why I dont see the voucher program as a success except as it creates competition. And to the extent that we can create competition, to put the standard public schools on notice that they have to improve or theyre going to be in jeopardy, thats fine.

"Charter schools are part of a multiple delivery system for education that includes public schools, home schools, cyber schools, private schools and parochial schools," Paige said. "The more choices parents have, the better they will be able to pick the right environment for their child. Empowered with options and information, parents can help their children achieve and succeed." On behalf of Secretary Paige, regional representative Michael Sentance presented the grant to Gov. Mitt Romney during an event to celebrate National Charter Schools Week at the Roxbury Preparatory Charter School in Roxbury. National Charter Schools Week runs May 3-7.
