New York: Closing Good Schools

Karim Camara
The article refers to the forthcoming closure of Catholic schools in the New York area. Many of the statements here may be read between lines by replacing the word "Catholic" with "Armenian." Many of the statements may also apply to Armenian school outside the Tri-State area and even outside the United States, in the far-flung Diaspora. What do we have to say? What do we have to do?

Last week’s announcement by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York that it may close another 27 schools should serve as a wake-up call for all who care about urban education across New York state. This is not just a “Catholic” issue.
