Catholic News Agency reports on a new foundation created by Pope Francis to advance Catholic education:

Observing the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council's declaration on Christian education, Pope Francis on Wednesday established a foundation meant to promote Catholic education worldwide.
 
 
“I am grateful to the Congregation for Catholic Education for the initiatives organised for this 50th anniversary of the declaration Gravissimum educationis,” the Holy Father wrote in an Oct. 28 chirograph, a letter circulated in the Roman Curia.
 
“I am likewise pleased to learn that the same Dicastery wishes to constitute on this occasion a Foundation named Gravissimum educationis, with the aim of pursuing 'scientific and cultural ends, intended to promote Catholic education in the world',” he wrote, quoting the foundation's statutes.
