Hope springs in the proverbial eternal and in real time, right now. There are solutions to the severe fiscal and related challenges facing Catholic K-12 education. This website (FS4CS.org) is dedicated to presenting components of that solution and to articulating how the parts constitute a coherent, comprehensive basis for long-term sustainability and rejuvenation.
FS4CS.org doesn't pretend to know how to save all brick-and-mortar Catholic schools. Some physical plants have outlived their purpose, but many more struggling schools can be saved and revitalized than will happen if present trends continue unabated. Indeed, new Catholic schools need to be built in areas with growing Catholic populations. It's also true that what constitutes a school and an education is being transformed by technology in ways that allow Catholic education to be reconceived in new (and improved) forms.
