12 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana November Archbishop asks Clinton to look at school choice issue again By JOSEPH DUERR to minorities and to students Catholic News Service who do not come from afflu- LOUISVILLE, Ky. (CNS)- Archbishop Thomas C. Kelly of Louisville has called on President-elect Bill Clinton to reconsider his opposition to publicly supported educa- tional choice programs that include Catholic and other non-public schools. "Allowing parents to choose the best possible school for their children will not weaken public educa- tion," Archbishop Kelly said Nov. 9 at an annual arch- . diocesan salute to Catholic alumni. Instead, he said, it "will es- tablish an appropriate, com- petitive environment in which all of us m public, pri- vate and Catholic schools will be challenged to work harder and to make sure that we truly serve the overall ed- ucational needs of our na- tion's greatest resource, our children." Clinton, in an interview with Catholic News Service before his election, said, "I think that part of the mission of Catholic schools is to com- municate the values of the Catholic Church to children, and I don't think the Consti- tution of our country permits taxpayers to subsidize that." "Without some form of sig- nificant public assistance for families who choose non- :: public schools," Archbishop : l.lly Jmld. ',American society willwitness an inevitable weakening of the educational ent families." Archbishop Kelly is board chairman of the National Catholic Educational Associa- tion. He said that if demographic trends continue in the Louisville area, "average fam- ilies ... will simply be unable to afford the cost of a Catholic school education." , He urged in his talk for Catholics to take part in a na- tionwide grass-roots move- ment "to convince state and federal legislators of the criti- cal importance of public sup- port for non-public educa- tion." Archbishop Kelly also asked Catholics in the arch- diocese to exercise steward- ship and increase "the amount of time, talent and fi- nancial support" to its Catlmlic schools. o t. - : ....

Here is a $12 sponsorship program for Americans who are unable to send $20, $21, or $22 a month to help a needy child. And yet, this is a full sponsorship program because for $12 a month you will receive: a 3-1/2" x 5" photograph of the child you are helping. two personal letters from your child each year. a complete Sponsorship Kit with your child's case his- tory and a special report about the country where your child llves. issues of our newsletter, "Sponsorship News." opportunities which offer we All this for only $12 a month? Yes--because Children International believes that many Americans would like to help a needy child. And so we searched for ways to reduce the cost--without reducing the help that goes to the child you sponsor.

Also, to keep down administrative costs, we do not offer the so-called "trial child" that the other organizations mail to prospective sponsors before the sponsors send any money. We do not feel that it is fair to the child for a sponsor to decide whether or not to help a child based on a child's photo- graph or the case history. Every child who comes to Children International for help is equally needy! And to minimize overseas costs, our field workers are citi- zens of the countries where they serve. Many volunteer their time, working directly with families, orphanages and schools. You can make a difference[ $12 a month may not seem like much help to many Amer- icans, but to a poor family living on an income of $1.50 or $2.00 a day, your sponsorship can help make all the difference in the world. Will you sponsor a child? Youi" $12a month will help pro- vide so much: emergency food, clothing and medical care. a chance to attend school. help for the child's family and community, with counsel- ing on housing, agriculture, nutrition, and other vital areas to help them become self-sufficient.
