Catholic Schools Plan On In-Person Learning This Fall

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — As the fall semester quickly approaches, the conversation about reopening schools continues. Catholic schools are planning on in-person learning.

The Archdiocese of Boston plans for in-person learning, with children and teachers wearing masks and social distancing rules in place.

Tom Carroll, Superintendent of Schools and Secretary of Education for the Archdiocese said it's an odd time and that since some families cannot afford tuition due to the economic fallout from the pandemic, schools are trying to get emergency federal help for students.

"We don't lack people who want to go to schools, we lack, at the moment, enough people who can afford to pay for the schools," Carroll said.

As the Archdiocese asks for federal help for parents who can no longer afford tuition, they argue it is for the child, not the church.
