To the Editor:

Regarding your Oct. 12, 2005, front-page article Another Reason to Resist Melding Public, Private "Catholic Schools Reopening After Katrina":

One cannot help but notice that, in the two accompanying photographs of students, only one of the dozens shown is African-American. Nearby public schools surely would have many more black faces. This lack of diversity in Catholic schools is one more reason why the Bush administration’s intent to favor private schools with $488 million in public funds is not a good idea.
