Fee paying schools run by religious congregations

An article in today's Irish Independent. It makes for most interesting reading.

Why should religious orders run fee-payng schools? Why should they run fee-paying shcools when in many cases the religious order running the schoold does not have one recognised teacher on the pay roll?

It is an absurdity staring the church in the face.

Young people dropping out of school all over the country, especially those will little resources and at the same time the church runs schools for the rich, schools subsidised by the State.

Fee-charging schools... and the secret scripture of the rich

John Walshe's recent article (Irish Independent, Saturday, January 7) on fee-charging schools raises some very uncomfortable questions regarding the Catholic Church's sponsorship of these schools.
