Have Faith in Religious Education

Catholic schools are closing their doors all across America, leaving future generations with nowhere to turn for the high-quality academics and values-based education so many families are seeking.  The number of students attending Catholic schools in the U.S. fell from about 5.2 million in 1965 to around two million in 2008. But Pioneer Institute believes these and other non-public academic options are worth preserving, and there is reason to believe we can help reinvigorate them.
