Catholic-School Effects on Academic Achievement: New Evidence from the High School and Beyond Follow-Up Study.
Willms, J. Douglas
Sociology of Education, v58 n2 p98-114 Apr 1985
Results suggest that there are no pervasive Catholic-school effects. Public schools had a small advantage in science and civics; Catholic schools had an advantage in reading, vocabulary, mathematics, and writing. All of the effects were very small. On average, the Catholic-school advantage was only about five percent of a standard deviation. (Author/RM)
