I doubt it since PA state law mandates that public schools provide bussing to private schools within 10 miles of the public school border if the public school provides busses to public school students. In other words, the Diocese changing buildings shouldn't be a logistical problem for most people who prefer a Catholic education for their chidlren

Nobody responded to it in a while because the title doesn't make any sense.

This thread title caught my attention and I don't even live in Phili.

48 Catholic Schools closing is an attention getter!
You know what's hilarious? You're not ... one of us so I don't care if my thread got your attention or not.

And it's PHILLY. Get it right. There isn't even an I in there! It's PhilAdelphia.. where is this I that people are using coming from?

Nobody responded in awhile because it was started hours ago and people stopped talking about it for a bit.

His thread didn't exist at the same time as mine so once again.. you make no sense.

See, that's why you shouldn't post on this topic. You have no clue what you're talking about.

Different schools cost different prices, first of all. Secondly, some kids won't want to travel that far. Do you have any idea how hard it is to take public transportation (like the majority of kids at Bonner/Prendie did) from Sharon Hill to Springfield? You have to transfer trolleys. What about the parents who drive their kids? The majority of the kids in that school came from Drexel Hill and Lansdowne so they could either walk or had their parents drive them if they didn't take the bus or trolley. Can't do that any more.

Yes, the Archdiocese will lose more students. There are plenty of kids who went to certain high schools because their parents did.

I know state education law and I worked for the Diocese so I also know more about the Diocese than the average person.

The Diocese is large and spans much farther than the areas you mentioned.



PA law regarding buses is relevant information for the parents who live in public school districts that provide bus transportation. Sadly, many Pennsylvanians aren't aware of their rights. Maybe some parents who have been driving their children will be thrilled to learn that buses are available. Maybe not. The information I provide may help someone. That's the purpose of this website. And anyone can post to any topic in any forum here.

btw, I'm not easily intimidated. But you're welcome to keep puffing yourself up for your own entertainment.

Lol.. puffing myself up? For real? You don't know "puffing yourself up" if you think I'm even remotely doing that. You insulted ME first, don't forget that. You can't even spell "PhillY" and yet you're trying to talk to me like you know better than me about a system I grew up in for 12 years of my life.

Thanks for informing me of things I've known since I was in gradeschool.

You're showing a clear ignorance of how things actually work for kids who go to those schools.

Just for fun I was checking St Hilary's in Rydal where I used to live and the tuition for one child who lives in the parish (Abington School District) is over $3,000. per year. Why would anyone pay that? Pretty shocking IMO

Bonner was like a terrible person factory. I never met anyone who went there that wasn't awful.

wow. no one responded because the title of the thread was awful.

I'm just throwing this out there, but are you perhaps playing a character? Is this some advanced form of satir?. You seem to have every single trait of a stereotypical delconian. when you type I can almost smell the natty ice on your breath.

LibraGirl replies: Have you ever heard of a rhetorical question?

Oh, and there's this neat little feature that I use every time I look at a thread, where you leave the mouse there and you get a preview of the words in it. That should make it quite clear what the thread is about.
Sure, I use that feature, and you say you use that feature, but I'll bet there are a good number of people here on City-Data that don't even know it exists.
