What have we learned about the benefits of private schooling?
The author summarizes the literature on the relative performance of public and private schools over the past decade and assesses what we have learned from these studies. Although many questions remain unanswered, the author concludes that private schooling--in particular, Catholic schooling--can raise graduation rates. In addition, the author finds that minority students in large cities have the most to gain from private schooling.
