Issues of Aid to Nonpublic Schools. Summary Analysis.
Erickson, Donald A.; Madaus, George F.
This is a summary analysis of Volumes I, II, III, and IV (see ED 058 486--489 of Issues of Aid to Nonpublic Schools. The cardinal ideas in these volumes are discussed under the following topics: Popular Fallacies as to the Role of Nonpublic Schools; The Nature of the Crisis in Nonpublic Schools; and Perils of Public Policy. The central outcomes of the study are stated as follows: I. A number of popular conceptions as to the role of nonpublic schools in American life are questionable and misleading; II. The nature of the crisis in nonpublic education is quite different from what is generally assumed; and III. Superficial attempts to alleviate the crisis will probably produce results opposite to those officially espoused. (For related document, see ED 058 473.) (DB)
