NATIONAL CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK 2017

TRUMP ISSUED STATEMENT FOR NATIONAL CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK January 29 - February 4

"In recognition of National Catholic Schools Week, I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to all of the dedicated Catholic school administrators, teachers, priests, and support organizations who work tirelessly to build and sustain quality Catholic schools across the Nation.

The theme of this year’s National Catholic Schools Week is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service.” I appreciate the many ways in which Catholic schools nurture devotion, impart wisdom, and minister to the 2 million students who enter their halls every day and to the diverse communities they serve.

Congratulations for the tremendous work you have done to educate our Nation’s youth each and every day. Your continued and sustained efforts are vital to our success and prosperity as a country".

Sincerely,
DONALD J. TRUMP

nice of him

my own experience with catholic education was decidedly mixed
a very strange history

3 years in primary school negative
i was delighted to escape to the public schools! - great education there - it formed me

why i chose a catholic women's college - a mystery - some very negative experiences there
but it also formed me and led me to where i ended up

graduate school at a catholic university and teaching in a catholic college were great - it was the 60s and John had thrown open the windows!

i sent my son to the local catholic school because their kindergarten was supposed to be the best
but by the time he was in second grade i saw the same old patterns of repression
i sent him to the very open and progressive public school and never looked back
Interesting. His pick for Secretary of Education right now has fierce opposition. They've even turned two Republicans off of her since she clearly has no idea about education. She seems to be in favor of trying to get rid of public schools and going to charters...which have been disastrous here.
the one attempt for a charter in my poor rural county was turned down
except for public money they had no idea how to sustain the school
