St. Louis archbishop pushing for better schools

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) — St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson is continuing work on what he has called his top priority — improving Catholic schools in the region, the Post-Dispatch is reporting.

For the past year, Carlson has been meeting with parents, teachers, pastors and national experts. The goal is to develop strategies to improve Catholic education in the St. Louis Archdiocese, where enrollment in its 11 counties has been steadily declining for four decades.

Carlson is positioning the St. Louis Archdiocese to follow the lead of other large Catholic school systems that have restructured to stop the loss of students.
