    What’s missing from this story are the “miracles” performed by the private — overwhelmingly Catholic — schools without benefit of the deep well of state and federal funding that feeds the public system. By early November of 2005 — two months after the storm — 8 of the city’s Catholic schools were already open, many months before the lumbering public bureaucracy could rise to the occasion. By the following spring, nearly 20,000 students were enrolled in private schools, nearly 3/4 their pre-storm enrollment. This was possible because of the heroic efforts of the diocese, the passion and commitment of the staff and local communities who knew better than to wait on a government fix. The untold story about post-katrina new orleans is that scores of its wiped-out families put shoulder to wheel and put their communities back together themselves, block by block, neighbors pitching in together.

    How very hopeful and elevating this is to read. I was lucky enough to be educated in Catholic schools and I am so grateful for the sacrifices my parents had to make to give me that special gift. Essentially, the parents of Catholic school students end up paying twice for their children to be educated but at least we ARE educated
