Being that it's a private school....the good fathers will decide based on the merit of funding.....if there is more money to be made by moving..the school will move...and vice versa....

Still in the news: Via WKBN-TV

By the way, where were some folks when the city school system closed a number of city schools such as Rayen?

The topic was Mooney moving and not the race for mayor of which there are a couple of threads that cover the race for mayor.
 
That is what the difference is.

What difference does it make?

I've heard that a south side councilman wants to run for Mayor of Youngstown.  If the person can't control crime and urban flight from his ward, what chance does the same person have of improving the conditions of the entire city?

PossablyJay might be thinking that the city councilperson can change the Bishop's mind, but that does not change the fact that there are not enough students in Youngstown to continue to support two high schools, and at this point the largest paying student group at Mooney lives outside Youngstown so it is in the best interest of the Church to move Mooney closer to the student body than to keep it in the city.
 
The city school system went through the same problem and closed three of its high schools.

Isn't Cardinal Mooney located in the sixth ward of Youngstown?

Not sure if it's 6th or 7th....

Aside from Mooney's current location, here are some facts that many are ignoring. Many of the Catholic schools are now closed due to declining enrollment. The Catholic population is down hence the closing of a number of churches, and the remaining population are having a hard time maintaining support of their churches and can no longer support offering scolarships to non-Catholic students in order to maintain a viable student population.
 
With the decreased population,the time will come when the remaining Catholic High School will face the possability of closing.
 
The largest segment of the city's Catholic population is senior citizens followed by poverty level families that have no other option than to sent their children to public schools.
 
These are facts, as hard as they maybe to take, and there is no getting around it.

It never did make sense having two Catholic High Schools in Youngstown, and as to the location its at now, I agree that its simply not safe, and from the looks of things, it won't get any better anytime soon.

I'm not....moving south into the burgs or into the country will help them attract more students. Parents who still fear
sending their children into Youngstown will now be more likely to make the move if the school moves out of Youngstown.....
Moving south towards Canfield is a strategic move....move where the population is.....
