Quality, Race, and the Urban Education Marketplace.
Hess, Frederick M.; Leal, David L.
Urban Affairs Review, v37 n2 p249-66 Nov 2001
Surveys conducted in 50 urban school systems nationwide investigated the impact of perceived school performance, race, and religion on private school enrollment. Results show some evidence that perceived public school quality may affect enrollment, consistent with claims that competition spurs improvement. Results also suggest that religion and racial considerations influence school selection. (SM)
