With 1 Green MPP and 1 NDP MPP who want to close “catholic” school system, what is future? #onpoli #onelxn #ottnews #toronto

June 8 update: 1 green MPP and NDP Joel harden both elected. Both support an end to catholic school system. We are sure there are otjer NDP MPPs who quietly think same. leader Horwath was Catholic educated but left the Faith and is now only “spiritual”.

Will the NDP or decimated liberals (or both) support no more funding?

Very prescient article from 34 years ago. All this has happened!! 90% of OECTA teachers do not practice true Catholicism (as defined by the Catechism).

As the financial burdens are eased, however, there is the danger some will think there is no need for further commitment or spirit of sacrifice. It must be there in other ways keeping before us all the urgency to develop faith by instruction and example the distinguishing characteristic of our Catholic schools. 

If this is lost our schools will become indistinguishable from any other fully tax-supported system even in moral and religious training. The financial sacrifices called for over the years now must be replaced by another, which for some may be more difficult. That is the sacrifice of teachers, parents and administrators who need to be more committed than ever to live their Catholic faith by open practice as well as inward spirit, by governing their lives by its moral principles, supporting the Church in its teaching and the local parish in its worship and efforts to make Christ present in the daily faith and love of its people. 

This new financial assistance can be a good thing only if the spirit of financial sacrifice needed to operate our schools in the past continues in a spirit of commitment to maintain the Christian spirit and goals in the future. 

Someone once said: “The Church is never so poor as when it is rich.” This must not happen to our Catholic schools or the whole country will be poorer.

People see this and now a majority want “catholic” school abolished:

OECTA Prez: “It’s a fallacy to speak about those types of savings … the funding follows the students. Wherever the students go that funding would need to go with them within the publicly funded education system,” she said. “There would be no savings.”

If there are no savings with less school boards and funding follows student, why is OECTA opposed to full or partial funding for other religions’ (this is supported by the Catholic Bishops) schools. According to oecta, number of boards does NOT matter to $$ spent.

More critiques of school by former catholic school principal . #ottnews #onpoli #onelxn @calphonso @endreg274

This very liberal catholic principal ran an OCSB catholic school with less than 50% of the kids even nominally Catholic.

This was his scathing critique. Please read and share!:

https://catholicintelligenceblog.wordpress.com/2018/02/19/scathing-critique-from-former-ocsb-principal-of-catholic-education-ottnews/

 

He has written more, with some interesting questions:

 

https://paulmcguire1.com/2018/05/22/responses-to-education-election-issues-are-we-creating-the-optimum-learning-environment-for-our-students/

My daughter was supposed to be entering JK in the Fall and we’ve chosen not to enrol her, because 36 kids stuffed into a play-based program with limited resources and objects being thrown at the teacher’s head is not my idea of a good learning environment for ANY child. It fills me with sadness that as a public school teacher I don’t feel safe enrolling my own child in my local public school.


 

https://paulmcguire1.com/2018/05/01/education-reform-why-are-we-rearranging-the-deck-chairs/

 

How are we served by a trustee system where local representatives are part-time at best and totally dependant on school board staff for the information they need to make decisions that affect thousands of children?

Do the rights of the student really come first in a system where hiring is done based on how many years you have existed on a seniority list?

How are we served by school board superintendents who are not accountable to anyone and have the ultimate authority over everything that matters to children in our schools? In a public school system, why are these people so far removed from public scrutiny?

Get your kids OUT of government/union run schools!! Superintendents are like the Phoenix pay execs of the federal government!! 

#catholic school “chaplains” attack faithful Catholic teen. @archtoronto #tcdsb #onelxn #onpoli #ycdsb #ocsb

A great article by a faithful Catholic student who attends a public school.

 

https://www.catholicregister.org/ysn/youthcolumn/item/27437-speaking-out-we-need-more-catholic-teachers

One of my other friends said on Ash Wednesday, homeroom teachers were reminded on the P.A. system to say a prayer after ashes were distributed. She was the only person in her class to line up for ashes, but more disturbingly, according to my friend, the teacher smirked at the end and asked sarcastically if anybody wanted to say a prayer. (They didn’t.)

Judged by what friends tell me, teachers are sometimes as unenthusiastic or detached from the faith as the students. All the Catholic values that school boards try to instil depend upon these significant people. Not all teachers, of course, are passive about encouraging the faith, but some are. And that is too many.

Her anecdotes are similar to hundreds our blog hears about (eg. a teacher comparing abortion to making an omelette!).

It also explains why Catholic school grad results are equal or worse from a Catholic morality perspective.

What do Catholic school “chaplains” (they are not really chaplains, they are chaplaincy leaders; only priests can be chaplains) do when they read this wonderful article?? They attack her!

They call her an “outsider” not a sister in Christ. They say the TRUTH harms “the truth”. Thank goodness the paper tweeted support for the rebuttal against CSCO.

 

For CSCO, it is not about trying to improve and teach orthodox Catholicism – it is about protecting their 90-$100K “professional Catholic” jobs and hiding from parents how non-Catholic their school system really is!

Apparently, going to prom is a “human right” for muslims in catholic schools . #ocsb #dpcdsb #tcot #catholic

https://www.mississauga.com/opinion-story/8617722-choosing-between-ramadan-and-prom/

Ramadan: May 18 to June 14.

Exam Dates: June 19, 20, 21, 22, 25, 2018

 

This fellow insists on Prom in the 4 days before final exams or crazy early in May with rain and cool temps!!

 

It’s upsetting because our school community and the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board has always boasted about being diverse and accepting differences, but failed to do so here.

As a student I feel excluded. I feel as though my beliefs have been disregarded and unvalued. I don’t think they made the effort to understand the meaning behind Ramadan and respect it or our religion in general.” Said Neha Ahmed, a senior at St. Francis Xavier Secondary School.”

=====

I cannot believe the sense of entitlement this student has! Of course, the school board and school has been sucking up to these students in order to keep enrollment up. And now it comes back to bite them.

 

This student does not want tolerance. He wants submission!

(On another note, it is incredible how the Grade 11 World Religions course is a total whitewash of Islam and their “prophet” Mohammed. Catholic students don’t even know that Jesus was the final true prophet!!

New LGBTQ indoctrination space for children in Ottawa. #tcot #catholic

Seeking $10M in donations. Whatever corporations don’t donate, I am sure the govt will pick up the rest! Yasir Naqvi was at the announcement and tweeted about it

Not a museum, more of an indoctrination facility for school groups on things like “Gender Elephant”. I am sure all the Grade 8 grad trips to Ottawa will now include this on their itinerary . Monitor carefully at your school trip starting in 2021!!
