There has been a great deal of discussion online about the invitation by Notre Dame of Barack Obama as commencement speaker and recipient of an honorary degree. Home school parents have a deep-seated interest in issues of Catholic higher education, since they want the good work they have started to continue. Although it isn’t the purpose of this blog to engage in debates about controversial issues, we do like to provide resources that help home schooling parents have informed opinions about matters directly or indirectly related to our work. For those who are interested in what the Church means by Catholic higher education, John Paul II’s Apostolic Constitution, Ex Corde Ecclesiae (1990). I think it would be difficult to form a solid opinion about these kinds of controversies without having read this document.
