The Buffalo News recently ran an “Another Voice” column written by Bishop Richard Malone which focused on the recent Diocesan Revitalization. “The closing of 10 schools will impact about 1,000 students,” said the Bishop. “To date, 639 have already registered at neighboring Catholic schools, and we fully expect that number to increase right up to the opening of the school year.”
Of course this is great news.
But…what about the teachers?
The Diocesan Revitalization leaves 195 teachers without jobs.
This past winter, after hearing the news of the projected school closings—and after hearing nothing about plans to re-employ teachers—Theresa Roma sprang into action. A proud graduate of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in Orchard Park, now slated to close, Theresa attributes her life’s success in part to the Catholic education.
