The So-Called Failure of Catholic Schools.
Greely, Andrew
Phi Delta Kappan, v80 n1 p24-25 Sep 1998
David Baker and Cornelius Riordan mistakenly claim that Catholic schools failed in the 1950s because they were mediocre. Their article is a house of cards built on a distortion of history and a single new finding that Catholic schools' social-class composition has changed. The "elitism" problem, stemming from rising costs, can be remedied by more comprehensive scholarship programs. (MLH)
