What a novel idea. Educators and schools making Catholic institutions unmistakably Catholic in their identity. When I visited Bishop Gorman Catholic High School in Las Vegas last year to speak to their faculty on evangelizing youth in Catholic school, it was refreshing to connect with a principal and administration with their goals properly prioritized. It inspired me to continue to speak and write on the topic, because I am passionate about seeing more of our Catholic schools follow suit. My husband and I have become increasingly interested in homeschooling over the years (the actual decision is still in the future, with our son being only eight months old), due in part to Catholic schools losing their Catholic identity and our desire for our children to have Catholicism imbue all of their educational pursuits. I could go on about this ad nauseam, but here is a recent article of mine in the National Catholic Register on Prioritizing Catholic Identity in Education: What Schools are Doing Right.
