Until I realized that "Schools" was the verb, I thought this was going to be a joke about a school employee, old schools, and two students walking into a bar or something.

It was probably illegal; and yet, there goes both kids' last, best hope to not end up D-list reality show contestants.

St. Therese? My goodness, that's a surprise - it's a pretty hippy-dippy private school. My godson goes there. Didn't Dominic mention being an alum too?

@6 - Or, there could be other reasons, such as the number of Catholics, and thus, the demand for Catholic schools, which are all private.

Plus, Catholic schools tend to dwarf the size of other private schools. The four largest private high schools in Seattle - Holy Names, Seattle Prep, O'Dea, Bishop Blanchet - are all Catholic.

Seattle has 24 Catholic schools. Renton has 1. Yet Seattle's population is only 7 times Renton's.

So it might have nothing to with anyone's confidence in Seattle public schools, but rather, an infestation of Catholics in Seattle.

@8 - 80% of students that attend O'Dea are Catholic. Is 80% "predominant" enough for you? And you can bet that they make the parents prove it, since they charge non-Catholics $1,400 more.

You can't even get your kid into Holy Rosary school in West Seattle unless at least one parent is a practicing Catholic, and like O'Dea, they make you prove it. I know because they vetted me, and I was just the godfather.

AND, of course, they insist that you are raising your child as a Catholic. This is not uncommon for Catholic schools, by the way.

So tell me again how much you know about schools, parents, and Catholics.

Again - Catholic schools in Seattle: 24. In Renton: 1.

Public Service Announcement:

The education troll named "unbrainwahed" is so embarrassed and so insecure about what they post that they've chosen to hide their comment history.

Also- the style of this troll is highly reminiscent of Mister G (who also hid comment history).
