The Roman Catholic Church has announced that it would like to partner with underperforming schools to help them improve their education. They have partnered with a few schools already to try and put their resources to work for the community.
There are mixed sentiments about this, especially concerning financial investments in non-Catholic schools. Since they have been doing this for a little while in certain areas, there will hopefully be enough data to ensure that the partnerships have proven successful.
Positives to allowing financial investments and partnerships with the Roman Catholic Church:
Negatives to allowing financial investments and partnerships with the Roman Catholic Church:
These concerns will most likely continue even if there are indisputable benefits to underprivileged schools, but rather than completely disregard the idea, an agreeable solution might be devised to allow non-Catholic schools to receive benefits from such a partnership without obligation to the Roman Catholic Church.
Financial investments could produce significant improvements in the level of education students are receiving in some areas of the UK, and plausible solutions should certainly be considered fully and thoroughly. Since this issue will most likely remain a much disputed one, the end result may come down to the value of an improved education.
