48 schools will close/merge in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia

CLICK HERE for the list of school closures/mergers

The parish where I grew up, the one where my first apartment was, and the one I live in now will all be affected by a merger. Not a particularly happy day for Yours Truly.

I understand the economic realities. When I graduated 8th grade, we had 124 kids in my class. Now some of these SCHOOLS are lucky to have that many kids in them. So yeah, I do "get it". I just don't have to LIKE it. And I don't.

Sigh. Oh, well.
