Research: Public vs private

New research shows that public schools do just as well as private schools, after differences in socio-economic background of students are considered. A recent  study published by reseearchers at the University of New England found that, after taking account of the different socio-economic background of students, private schools are not associated with higher average student achievement in standardized literacy and numeracy tests at any grade. Nor do private schools provide greater progress in reading and numeracy from grade 3 through grade 9.

Save Our Schools has published the details and a link to the full study report on its website.
