Education committee opens site for public comments

The blue-ribbon committee charged with providing a long-term strategic plan for the health of Catholic schools is soliciting online comments from the public.

The page, www.archbalt.org/blueribboncommittee, is confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside the blue-ribbon committee. The archdiocese hopes to attract voices of people who care about the future of Catholic schools.

People sharing comments can include their name, e-mail address and relationship to Catholic schools. Students, parents, teachers, principals, pastors and others are all invited to offer suggestions.

The blue-ribbon committee is composed of well-known and respected area education, government, philanthropic and business leaders appointed by Archbishop Edwin F. O’Brien.

The committee began its monthly meetings in March and is expected to present a report to Archbishop O’Brien in June of 2010.

Those without access to the Internet may mail their written comments to: Public Comment, Blue Ribbon Committee on Schools, Archdiocese of Baltimore, 320 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201.
