The real problem here is the fact that the Abbey is dragging down what used to be considered a fine educational institution. These lawsuits are going to cost not only the Abbey money but the University itself. The University, Prep School and the Abbey need to split otherwise they are going to see a continued decline in admissions. It’s no secret that the University and the Prep school are having a tough time keeping enrollment up.
Every time one of these lawsuits pops up it’s another dagger in the heart of the schools. Unfortunately the monks and the Abbey don’t see the forest for the trees and are willing to take everything down with themselves.
