Private School Education in the U.S. An Annotated Bibliography, 1950-1980.
Songe, Alice H.
This selective and annotated bibliography represents the body of literature published on nonpublic elementary and secondary education between 1950 and 1980, as well as some important titles that appeared in 1981. The work covers all aspects of independent and church-related schools--their aims and objectives, history, administration, and financial, social, and racial problems. Special attention is given to views on four controversial topics: the constitutionality of providing public support for private education; the impact on public education of providing public support to private education; rights of parents in selecting the schools their children will attend; and the relationship between the goals of a democratic society and what the author terms the elitist objectives of private schools. The publications are of four types: 130 are books, monographs, or serials; 42 are government publications; 124 are articles in periodicals; and 125 are unpublished doctoral dissertations. publications are indexed by subject and author. A listing of 55 national and state private education associations is appended. (Author/PGD)
