Agreed, Elder must do better to attract all types of students.I assume cost is the biggest reason why minority students aren’t choosing Catholic Grade Schools. You would think if it were feasible, the choice of Lawrence, William, Res, HF vs Oyler, Carson, Whittier would be easy. However, even if those schools have reasonable tuition with aid, it’s still a tough swing for a lot of parents in that area.
I know Elder and the feeder schools are always going to be linked together, but they can’t spend too much time worrying about how they handle their business. Elder needs to focus on what they can control. That focus is better spent on establishing relationships with students at these schools, finding a way to get them interested early.
