H.Res. 29 (ih) Relating to the treatment of veterans with Alzheimer's disease. [Introduced in House] ...
H. Res. 28
In the House of Representatives, U.S.,
February 6, 2001.
Whereas America's Catholic schools are internationally acclaimed for their
academic excellence, but provide students more than a superior
Whereas Catholic schools ensure a broad, values-added education emphasizing the
lifelong development of moral, intellectual, physical, and social values
in America's young people;
Whereas the total Catholic school student enrollment for the 1999-2000 academic
year was 2,653,038, the total number of Catholic schools is 8,144, and
the student-teacher ratio is 17 to 1;
Whereas Catholic schools provide more than $17,200,000,000 a year in savings to
the Nation based on the average public school per pupil cost;
Whereas Catholic schools teach a diverse group of students and over 24 percent
of school children enrolled in Catholic schools are minorities;
Whereas the graduation rate of Catholic school students is 95 percent, only 3
percent of Catholic high school students drop out of school, and 83
percent of Catholic high school graduates go on to college;
Whereas Catholic schools produce students strongly dedicated to their faith,
values, families, and communities by providing an intellectually
stimulating environment rich in spiritual, character, and moral
Whereas in the 1972 pastoral message concerning Catholic education, the National
Conference of Catholic Bishops stated, ``Education is one of the most
important ways by which the Church fulfills its commitment to the
dignity of the person and building of community. Community is central to
education ministry, both as a necessary condition and an ardently
desired goal. The educational efforts of the Church, therefore, must be
directed to forming persons-in-community; for the education of the
individual Christian is important not only to his solitary destiny, but
also the destinies of the many communities in which he lives'': Now,
therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
(1) supports the goals of Catholic Schools Week, an event sponsored
by the National Catholic Educational Association and the United States
Catholic Conference and established to recognize the vital contributions
of America's thousands of Catholic elementary and secondary schools; and
(2) congratulates Catholic schools, students, parents, and teachers
across the Nation for their ongoing contributions to education, and for
the key role they play in promoting and ensuring a brighter, stronger
future for this Nation.
