Catholic Schools – Great for America!
Catholic schools save American taxpayers $24 billion annually. Yes, you read that right. Catholic schools save us as a nation $24 billion every single year!
And since Catholic schools themselves are more likely to function as a community rather than a bureaucracy, students who attend Catholic school tend to be more community-minded. They are more likely to vote. More likely to participate in volunteer programs. More likely to be civically engaged. And are more tolerant of others’ views. These are just a few small ways in which Catholic schools build up our nation.
