Frank Witsil Detroit Free Press Published 1:56 PM EDT Mar 29, 2019 After 67 years, a Dearborn Heights Catholic school is closing at the end of the academic year, a move that administrators said was prompted by declining enrollment, financial challenges and changing neighborhood demographics. "It has just been a combination of things," Kathleen Johnson, principal of St. Sebastian Catholic School, said Friday. "All of it comes together and makes it difficult to keep going forward." In many ways, however, St. Sebastian's closing is part of a bigger trend nationwide in which schools — including parochial, private, public and charter institutions — are facing less stability from year to year as competition for students mounts. Stability also a factor that some parents say they are now starting to consider when selecting a school.

NEW YORK- New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art welcomed almost 7.4 million visitors in 2018, figures showed Friday, a new record for the venerable institution which in March began charging a fixed fee for out-of-towners. The figure represented a rise of 5.1 percent compared to 2017, itself a record-setting year. The bump in attendance was in large part thanks to the "Heavenly Bodies" exhibit which explored the links between fashion and the Catholic Church and attracted 1.7 million people. Also of note were exhibitions dedicated to Michelangelo and David Hockney, both of which took place in late 2017 and early 2018. The 2018 figures included visitors to the museum's main building, located on the eastern side of Central Park facing 5th Avenue, as well as its two other Manhattan locations, the Met Cloisters and the Met Breuer. Attendance did not suffer as a result of a new pricing policy that was introduced March 1, which broke for the first time the tradition of allowing everyone … [Read more...] about New York’s Met welcomed record 7.4 million visitors in 2018
