Ships, wealth, general confidence, All were his; He counted them at break of day, And when the sun set! where were they.
- Byron, English Poet (1788-1824)
A 2009 comparison between public and Catholic school SAT scores show that public school students had an overall average of 496 points on the critical reading portion of the test while Catholic school students scored 533 points on the same portion. Catholic school students outscored their public school counterparts by an average of 23 points. What makes the numbers more impressive is that Catholic high schools spend more than $2,000 less per pupil than public schools.
No wonder the bureaucrats and teachers unions don’t want school choice.
