In a changing culture, we need to be clear and firm as parents about our goals for our children. Every school helps to form the human person. The mission of Catholic schools is to have souls make it to heaven. The stakes are high as parents make their decisions. Our show address this and this speaker makes it more clear to help parents form their view. We have an in-depth interview that addresses the value of a Catholic education, the differences between public school philosophy and Catholic schools and the missions we need to be aware of as parents when making their decisions. Many more topics are discussed including Common Core.
