Stevans, Lonnie K.; Sessions, David N.
Education Economics, v8 n2 p169-84 Aug 2000
Examines differences in an index of 4,172 urban private/public school seniors' standardized test performance, based on a 1992 national longitudinal study. Controlling for family and other variables, concludes that white students perform marginally better in private (Catholic) schools. However, minority students showed no performance gain.
