Public and Private School Cooperation. Trends in Education Series.
The relationship between public and nonpublic or private schools at the elementary and secondary levels is analyzed and ten predictions advanced. The public sector will increase in scope and size and operate as the established educational system. The private sector will decrease in size, be more distinctive and less influenced by prevailing public school standards, and be less church related. Cooperation between the two systems will stem largely from specific legislation that calls for formal cooperation. Dual enrollment and other forms of sharing will not increase. Project cooperation will continue in areas related to social concerns and educational technology. The most dramatic increases in public-private cooperation in education will take place in the area of special education. Experimental approaches that attempt to offer alternatives, such as the voucher system, have little prospect of widespread success. Finally, despite busing and court ordered desegregation, the differentiation in public education based on social class will continue as an important factor in maintaining influential support for public education.
