The Measurement of Alternative Costs of Educating Catholic School Children in Public Schools.
Daniere, Andre L.; Madaus, George F.
Non-public school enrollment in Massachusetts --19.1 percent-- has always been among the nation's highest, with the majority of these students enrolled in Catholic schools. The rising cost of education and a decreasing supply of non-lay teachers are placing economic burdens on the Catholic schools, causing some to close and others to be phased out. The effect of this phasing out, in terms of tax rate increase, is estimated for all towns and cities in Massachusetts where Catholic schools presently exist. The purpose of this study is to measure how much public budgets save by the existence of the Catholic school system. The design of the study and tables showing the data are included. (Tables 12, 13, and 14 may reproduce poorly because of marginal legibility.) (Author/MLF)
