Justice Sotomayor wants you . . . to celebrate National School Choice Week

As The New York Times, reports here, Justice Sotomayor is "heartbroken" over the closing of Blessed Sacrament School in the Bronx.  The school is, of course, one of nearly 2000 urban-area Catholic schools that have closed in the last decade alone.    The Justice said:

“You know how important those eight years were? It’s symbolic of what it means for all our families, like my mother, who were dirt-poor. She watched what happened to my cousins in public school and worried if we went there, we might not get out. So she scrimped and saved. It was a road of opportunity for kids with no other alternative.”

Right on.  For more, see N. Garnett & M. Brinig, Catholic Schools and Broken Windows, here.  And, happy National School Choice Week!
