No apology 

The teacher who answered questions before now has a full rebuttal up. She continues her Balkanization of standards committees, claiming that there are only 7000 students in Catholic schools. This seems quite unlikely. Nationally, about 55% of students in private schools are in Catholic schools, and there are about 85,000 students in private schools in Minnesota (along with 14,000 homeschoolers, as Ms. Skrentner acknowledges.) So she's badly undercounted those students, and hasn't reserved a place for other religious schools, such as our many Lutheran schools up here in Minnesota. But I'm not an expert in education like she is, so what do I know?
