I guess that despite what these parents paid in tuition for their children to attend this school, they did not deserve the price of a stamp to inform them of this decision!! No excuses, Lois. Poor decision! One other thing, another feeder school closes and they were seriously entertaining the thought of spending millions on a new high school without guarantee of new enrollees?

To all of you right wing Tea Party and religious fanatics who are rabid about this, today's news stated that 50% of pregnancies are not planned. Not advocating abortion here, just stating that you are the same people complaining about paying ADC to those people having too many babies in your opinion.

Dwight F. Which pocket of David Engler did you crawl out of? Unbelievable comment. What country do you live in. We are free as individuals. Problem here is that the ONLY dirt they can dig up on Donofrio is that he has a brother.!! Now...Engler?? He had an illustrious career for years. And destroyed the trust that the public had for him. !! Yes..the Feds were focused on Jimbo. And he escaped. their wrath!! Lucky guy!!! But, still a has a blemish that will not go away!!

jeratboy...first of all...not a Mooney fan, but, HOW DARE YOU INDICATE THAT PARENTS SEND THEIR KIDS TO CATHOLIC SCHOOLS DUE TO LOW LIFES IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. You are a low life...elitist idiot. And as a parent who sent our children to a Catholic school, we never denigrated their public counterparts. You are the epitome of the elitist racism that permeates this move!! You make me ashamed to think that you may be a Catholic. Shame on your non Christian heart. What would Jesus do> Scorn you!!' That being said...this move also smells of the ability to recruit those big country boys to shore up those offensive and defensive lines!! Good...now go to Division I. And try to compete there. Heard in the mid 90's from a coach that Mooney purposely controls it's male population to keep them in a lower division where they can compete and dominate!! In this case, being a Catholic, I am so disappointed that the Bishop, being Jesuit in nature, is not adhering to the Jesuit beliefs. He has caved to the money machines that are pulling the strings.!!

Filter, who are you kidding?? Seriously!!! As a practicing Catholic, my envelope will be used in part to subsidize this racist and elitist move!! Sure, the big guns will pony up at first...but, who will maintain it? Church envelopes!!! Build your own!! Go ahead and see if you can do it without the help of the parishes of the Youngstown Diocese!! You may be able to pull the wool over eyes of others, but, I served on a parish council/finance and I know how churches are assessed to support these schools!!Also...the endowment?? Sure to any inner city youth who can run the football. !!!! All smoke and mirrors to show that they have a heart for the inner city youth!! NOT!Hypocrisy at it's best. Shames me as a Catholic!!! Bishop succumbed to the monetary powers that be.!!! That is what guides organized religion And Catholics are obviously no exception!!!

To all of you private school elitists; How about doing the real Christian thing? Do not turn away students; Do not hand pick students. Try to educate the masses as the public schools are mandated to do. Then POST your scores with pride! Not going to happen!! And Silence Dogwood, IT IS THE JOB OF THE VINDY to present the ENTIRE story. I would think you would be angry with them since they were not out there posting scores so you could walk around with your chest puffed out!!

When are we going to see the scores for charter schools, which run on taxpayer dollars? When are we going to see the scores for Mooney and Ursuline, which are subsidized by taxpayer dollars for certain programs, as well as individual church assessments?. Vindy, have you contacted these schools to release their scores? Or are they dragging their feet, as usual, in releasing them?

Smokescreen folks!!! Do you really believe that in the investigation of costs to remodel or replace that asbestos removal was not at the top of the list in cost? Truly!?? This is their "out" to reverse the decision. Disappointed in the Bishop. Someone powered with money got to him! They can build it. Not on my envelope as a subsidy as most of our churches are required to do!! Also, the new Wilson school is closing!! Why not purchase that brand new building? !!!! Oh wait, it is in the city where they can still take the voucher students. Elite behavior at it's best.!
