According to the excellent website Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice, currently, some 96% of children who attend a Catholic school, will lapse from the Faith.

All of my working life I have been driven by a results based accreditation of performance ideal.
That means, in plain English, that you produce spectacular results or you are out on your backside.
And quite right too. The same should apply to those who have driven such a low level and uninspiring programme of Catholic RE over the years.
How many young souls have been lost to God over the years as a result of an impoverished and perverted religious syllabus?
Indifference, apathy, idleness and incompetence have all played their part.
And, evil intent must be added to that tally.
When our children were young we had the heretical programme called 'Weaving the Web' to contend with.
