In Brooklyn, NY some of the Diocesan school may close. One reason people attend private schools is for smaller class sizes and more extra curricula activities. To keep the Diocesan schools open some suggestions that I learned from the public school problems (I have a School Counselor Certification):
- The public schools went to smaller class sizes which are still larger than private school classes-Increase the number of students in the classes at Catholic schools which would still be smaller than the public schools.
- The public schools reduced the extra curriula activities-Cooperation with other Catholic schools for extra curriula activity sharing.
The government is also concerned about the Catholic Schools, The Tidings Southern California’s Catholic Weekly February 20,2009 states that if these schools close, the students would go to schools in the area that are already at near capacity.
