Six Catholic schools in New York archdiocese will be run by outside organization

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York is trying to save six cash-strapped elementary schools by allowing an outside organization to run them. The New York Daily News says the Partnership for Inner-City Education is contracting with the archdiocese to manage the finances and oversee the academic curriculums of the schools in the Bronx and Harlem. It’s the first time that an independent group will take control of New York City parochial schools. The schools: Sacred Heart, St. Athanasius and Immaculate Conception in the Bronx; and Mount Carmel-Holy Rosary, Our Lady Queen of Angels and St. Mark the Evangelist in Harlem. The archdiocese shuttered two dozen elementary schools in June.
