Enrollment at Catholic elementary schools in Brooklyn and Queens grew for the first time in a decade as the city scraps gifted and talented programs.

Enrollment for the current school year increased by 2.4 percent, after a decade of decline, according to the Diocese of Brooklyn.

New York’s parochial schools fully reopened more or less a full year ahead of schools run by the city Department of Education, which have seen a steep enrollment and attendance drop. More recent interest in Catholic schools has been spawned by Mayor de Blasio’s announced plan to kill the Gifted & Talented classes, as parents seek alternatives to remote learning and look for more challenging classrooms.

“The families that came to us last year stayed with us,” Dr. Thomas Chadzutko, superintendent of the Diocese of Brooklyn’s schools, told The Post in an interview. “This is a positive time for Catholic education within the diocese […] It is an alternative for families.”

I trust parents more than I do the Gooferment, the Teachers’ Union, politicians, or bureaucrats.

We know from the origins of Gooferment Skrules that their purpose was cannon fodder for the Army, willing morons for the factories, and useful idiots to vote for and be led by the elite.  So maybe this is a chance to turn the tide.

The older I get, the more I think, why? The only answer I can find is hate. Hate is the beginning of a disease, like cancer. It may kill your enemy, but it will destroy you in the process too.

So I hate no one, not even Hitler. I do not forgive him. If I forgive, I am a traitor to the six million who died. But I also live for them, and live the best life I can.

Life is not always happiness, there are many hard days. Don’t blame others for your misfortunes. Remember you are lucky to be alive. Every breath is a gift.

Life is beautiful if you let it be: please, every day, remember to be happy, and to make others happy, too.
