About Those Private School Achievements.
Bracey, Gerald W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n8 p629-30 Apr 1998
According to 1996 National Assessment of Educational Progress science results, there is no difference between private and public school performance by the time one reaches the 75th percentile of grade 12. Recent SAT scores for the top 20% of students indicate teachers are not inflating grades. The National Center for Fair and Open Testing (FairTest) indicates that high-stakes NAEP testing does not improve performance. (MLH)
