Archdiocese Gives Control of Secondary Schools to Independent Foundation

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia, today, announced that an independent foundation will take over management of its secondary and special education programs. Faith in the Future Foundation is the recently incorporated organization that will run the programs and look to grow a Catholic school system that has been hit hard by financial ailments and closings. The move makes the Philly schools the first independently-managed Catholic school system in America. [Inquirer]
