Private Schools and Government Finance: A Taxonomic Classification of Alternatives.
Jones, Thomas H.; Fulginiti, Jeanne
Policies for the provision of financial aid to elementary and secondary schools by national governments can be classified into four types: statist, in which no private education exists and only state schools are funded; separate, in which private education is privately funded and public education receives government support; supportive, in which both private and public education are fully government funded; and syncretic, in which private schools receive substantial but not full government funding. These categories were developed using taxonomic research methods involving data analysis, literature reviews, and instrument verification. Examples of countries falling into each category are provided. A short bibliography is included. (PGD)
