There may not be a lot of MOJ readers in Rome (or maybe there are -- and at the highest levels?) ... Anyhow, there is a conference this Monday in Rome on "State Financing of Catholic Schools," held at the Pontifical University Antonianum, and co-sponsored by the university's canon-law faculty and the Acton Institute. I'll be speaking along with Acton's president Fr. Robert Sirico and its research director Dr. Sam Gregg. I'll speak on America's pattern of refusing funding to K-12 religious schools and on whether that tradition can be consistent with an appreciation for institutional pluralism.
