Have You Hugged Your Local Catholic School Lately?

This week marks the 33rd annual observance of "Catholic Schools Week." Here are a few statistics:
7,799 schools (6,574 elementary, 1,225 secondary).

2,420,590 enrollment (1,779,638 elementary/middle, 640,952 secondary).

Average tuition: $2,432 elementary, $5,870 secondary.
I wonder if what they used to say about all those nuns and their rulers really was true?
