A Crisis for Catholics; A Loss for Education

Hosted by

Twenty-five years ago, LA's Garfield High School was turning the children of poor Latino immigrants into college-educated engineers, lawyers, doctors and corporate executives, thanks to Jaime Escalante, who died yesterday at the age of 79. Can his teaching strategies be replicated or was he one of a kind? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the scandal of sex abuse by Roman Catholic priests has exploded in Europe. Even the Vatican says that the moral authority of the church is at stake. Lay Catholics are asking the Pope himself to reveal what he knew, when he knew it and how he responded.
