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? :)

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

Jambles, do you have any idea in the world what I've studied or not studied? Do you actually think the rules about who can and cannot have the sacrament on your church are particularly complicated? Why are you trying to lie about them?

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.

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.

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

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.

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?

So you wern't asking what the difference in the schools actually were?  You were asking what is the difference in the outcome of students?  I thought everyeone was trying to answer what you asked, but I guess it wasn't what you meant.

You call changing schools as "playing the system" which sounds like you disapprove of that kind of thing.  You disapprove of changing schools--once a child is in whatever school system you start out in, it should never change or the parents are doing something shifty?  Your children haven't gone to the same school have they?  Is that playing the system?  I know many parents IRL who take part of the their child's school years and do something different--homeschool, private school public school, charter school and sometimes go back to what they started with or not.  You really don't know anyone IRL who does that?  Or are you just trying to convey disapproval to the couple of posters who have done that here?

Catholic education is a topic I don't think you know a whole lot about PKA. For starters, the eucharistic table isn't a closed one.

Oh, so the entire fluff was aimed at getting back to a private catholic school education debate--and to return to this?  OMG

Jam, it seems that you very much regret not taking the path that your mother and father did in educating your children in a parochial school.

Your credentials don't impress me.  Do colleagues read what you write here?  I'm curious what this looks like on a professional front actually.  Thanks.

BTW, FYI The actual catechism's reference about the eucharistic celebration and table.  Please refer to or around citation 1400:

Well, Jambles, you aren't impressed by people who've walked on the moon, either, so I'm in good company. You aren't impressed by actual accomplishments, but on the other hand, Soring's ability to google the # of carbs in a banana leaves you open-mouthed in admiration. Color me Indifferent. Oh, and the section of the catechism you quoted had nothing to do with the question of whether the RCC practices closed communion or not.
