What separates private school from public school IYO?

What school memories stand out about your own schooling?  Did you attend public schools or "private"?

What did you want to be when you grew up?

As a side, What's your weather like today? :)

By the way, Jambles, since you feel qualified to critique my knowledge of church history, would you mind sharing your credentials? I was trained by one of the foremost Catholic historians of the twentieth century, and he passed me with distinction and ok'd my dissertation, but perhaps you are more knowledgeable than he?

Is that what it was called when you were in private school, a kickback?  I haven't ever heard that term used, so that must be your experience.  I wonder though, students who attend on financial aid and scholarships, what do you call that?  But you are wrong though, public schools do sell their services, they work to get tax increases, bond issues and more students into their district.

I'm quite familiar with Catholic doctrine, not only in its present form, but how it's developed and been articulated through the centuries. Im familiar with the current catechism. Here's a really good Catholic explanation of the closed table practice: http://home.earthlink.net/~mysticalrose/closed.html

And I'm sure those schools appreciate the nice kickback in return called tuition.  Schools in general are very accomodating, Even public school that don't sell their services.

The only one making this complicated is you not I.   How much of the catechism are you familiar with?  Curious.  Your knowledge of church history doesn't strike me as very good,  Catholic Doctrine is drawn from church history.

Que the diversion, err attack on the person because one can't discuss the subject.

Another exception to teaching certification is substitutes, not all districts (or private schools) require even a bachelors to substitute in classrooms, only a certain number of college credits.

The only one making it so complicated is you.  We have a house in a parish with a real fire and brimstone pastor.  The Greek Orthodox celebrants take communion.  In my undergrad, the Greek Orthodox students were also invited to take communion.

Roman Catholic?  I hadn't realized that the Catholic church has changed their policy on communion, can you link me to something that supports your claim of an open table?
