Why is this news? This is classic Ed Palatella. Find anything to bring people or an organization down.

Ed...you are sick.

Now we will have three months of Ed copy and pasting the same story over and over and over.

Agree about eddie. However, if a businessman pulled that stunt of failing to pay taxes withheld, someone would be going to jail.

That how 99% of businesses/s-corps owe money to the IRS. This happens ALL THE TIME. Its only an issue if the money was taken to buy cars and houses...lol If they could not be paid because of a tough time there is no crime.

Ed again is try to hammer another local Erie person or business. Thats all he does.

His job is to spin negativity...even if it means not telling the whole truth. Now we will see this story 75 times copy and pasted.

Catholic Grade Schools(this one) take in kids that can't afford more than ever, combined with less enrollment. Difficult to raise tuition when the public schools that have "unlimited" resources per the teacher unions, continue to pay higher salaries, get Taj Mahal buildings, technology(courtesy of the taxpayers), etc. Hard to compete in this economy where everyone watches their money. Can only raise it so much, even the wealthy will only pay so much.

I served on a school board for a local Catholic school. It's tough to raise your prices when your competition is giving it away.

So the rick f**cks should send their kids to the city schools like you poor deadbeat f**cks do?? In other words you need government to do everything for you. How is this worse than the government indoctrinating schools running up millions in deficits?

I too served on the board of a Catholic grade school about 4 years ago.I kept telling other board members that eventually the cost of tuition would be the biggest deciding factor concerning the decline of the number of students.That insight has come to fruition as numbers drop and tuition climbs.Especially in a depressed city and area like ours.
The most frustrating part of trying to get others to realize the truth was their denial and belief that if parents only learned what a wonderful school we had to offer they would reconsider and register their children to attend.Attempts were made to advertise the benefits of a Catholic education with little success.
In the end it usually comes down to simple economics and that is exactly what is happening and will keep happening with local Catholic schools.

Hello, Mr. Obvious. Both the pool of potential students and the economic well are only so deep, that is why parochial school consolidation is the wave of the future, like it or not. Those with deep pockets will gobble up the little schools, ala Sacred Heart and St. Andrews. St. Pete's should have been the big fish with their well heeled parents but looks like OLC and OLP will survive, along with Villa Elementary, even with no parish support they will always be around for a variety of reasons, unless their current principal buries them with his ego.

Agreed. Unfortunately Erie has such a "theirs/mine" attitude that does not support a sense of community that it will take generations to repair or even bridge the gap, given that the poster right after you responds by using racial epitaphs. Parochial schools do not teach that, they teach tolerance, acceptance, kindness and love. I tolerate paying my real estate taxes and private school tuition because I know in the long run society, at least a little bit of it, will be better off for it for having not been exposed to idiots like the one who posted such an ignorant comment.
