Within-District Effects of Catholic Schooling on 12th-Grade Math Achievement
Chen, Vivien W.; Pong, Suet-Ling
Journal of School Choice, v8 n1 p1-19 2014
Using a propensity score matching method, and regression modeling based on the 2002 Education Longitudinal Study, this study found a significant Catholic school, mathematics achievement effect among those 12th graders who were least likely to attend Catholic school. This result is evident within districts after we used the School District Demographics System map data to locate Catholic schools within school district boundaries. Furthermore, the Catholic school effects were statistically significant for students in districts that allowed publicly funded private education.
