Reading this book convinced me to go to work in Catholic education. Before you even get to the long statistical analysis of student performance in Catholic schools, the book includes a nice history of Catholic schools in the United States, which, as a Catholic school parent but never a student, I found fascinating and, in a way, evangelizing Cited by:   A semiautobiographical coming-of-age story, framed by the harrowing Circeo massacre.

Edoardo Albinati’s The Catholic School, the winner of Italy’s most prestigious award, The Strega Prize, is a powerful investigation of the heart and soul of contemporary Italy. Three well-off young men―former students at Rome’s prestigious all-boys Catholic high school San Leone /5(13).

Because there. Catholic schools began in the United States as a reaction against a growing publicly-funded school system that was essentially Protestant. Inthe American Bible Society announced its intention to make certain that the Bible was read in every classroom in America.1 There was no disagreement in a country that was essentially Protestant.

Ina comprehensive study was done by Cardus, which calls itself a “think tank dedicated to the renewal of North American social architecture.” It surveyed graduates of public schools, Protestant Christian schools, Catholic schools, non-religious private schools.

Hello, I am from Canada too so I get the Catholic/ Public school debate. I attended Catholic throughout school. My mom is catholic(ish) and my dad is atheist. My mom teaches with the catholic board though so i was enrolled in that system.

Now my sister teacher public and my mom catholic. They both say that the Catholic system is better in many.

Evolution is not taught in any public school, or at least, it is not taught in full. No school actually teaches evolution as a whole, nor do they practice it as being true in any real sense.
