Parents are the primary educators of their children. Parents have the right to choose a school for them which corresponds to the own personal convictions and public authorities have the duty of guaranteeing this parental right. Principles for Educational Reform in the United States (1995) asserts that “parental rights are natural and inalienable and should not be limited to the economically privileged.”
According to the United States Catholic Bishops, “[It is the] responsibility of the whole Catholic community,” said the Conference, “to strive towards the goal of making Catholic elementary schools available, accessible, and affordable to all Catholic parents and children.”
Public-private partnerships, like vouchers and scholarship tax credit programs greatly expand the capacity of urban Catholic schools to sustain educational excellence, especially in low-income communities.
