Some Basics of Catholic Life

The Catholic Education of Children

Catholic parents have the right and duty to choose those means, in their local circumstances, which best promote the Catholic education of their children. Parents should send their children to those schools which provide for their children's Catholic education. If they cannot do this, they are bound to ensure the proper Catholic education of their children outside the school. Where, despite all the efforts that have been made to provide a Catholic school, no suitable school is available, parents should seek help from the parish clergy and catechists to assist them in their duty to their children.
