Public and Private High Schools: Is School Choice an Answer to the Productivity Problem?
Goldhaber, Dan D.
Economics of Education Review, v15 n2 p93-109 Apr 1996
Uses 1988 National Education Longitudinal Study data to explore whether public-private high school choice would help improve students' overall achievement. Applies estimated sectoral achievement differentials to a structural school choice model to determine if parents choose schools that academically benefit their children. Private schools do not outperform public schools, but sectoral achievement differentials affect choice. (21 references) (MLH)
