I agree Tom, I am not convinced of the accuracy of this. Also, if you know ANYTHING about Catholic dioceses, you know some of them are geographically the size of the state of Rhode Island while others are literally WHOLE STATES. Obviously the bigger the geopraphic area, the more the people. Louisville's diocese includes bible belt couties around Bowling Green. Furthermore, the Louisville diocese does not include heavily Catholic southern Indiana (which is included in the Indianapolis diocese), which is certainly part of the Louisville experience. The Catholic/German/Irish influence pervades Louisville unlike any other southern city outside New Orleans. Fish frys, summer picnics, and church functions are a memory for every person who lives in the area. It seems almost every resident has been to the St Joseph's picnic at the least. Louisville is a unique city for having a near equal prescence of baptists and catholics.

Default Hey, wait, the topic here was to help...

We blew it, I am sorry for my part, but the people moving from Florida needed to know about Louisville. I attempted to giver them a very honest, very accurate, but impossibly complete synopsis of Louisville, and we run off into a dead end canyon debating statistics.

The big picture is this, yes Louisville is a wonderful place to live, just don't plan on sending your child to JCPS. Oldham County, although a superior public system isn't the only great system in the Louisville area.

Slow down there partner not all JCPS is the same. If you must put them in, sign up for the traditional program. They have higher standards than the run of the mill programs but it is a lottery, it may take some time to get in.

So, why are not all schools in JCPS operated to the same standards as the traditional program? You are right, there are 90,000 plus children in Jefferson County. 90,000 children are not getting a bad education, but do you want to be a new arrival gambling on where your child will land? Lottery by itself is a gamble.

That is true.... all kids should have the same opportunity. All three of mine are already in the traditional program and not even all traditional schools are of the same caliber. Ya know, it's truly sad we are even HAVING this converastion!
