Democratic Education across School Types: Evidence for the U.S. from NHES99
Belfield, Clive R.
Education Policy Analysis Archives, v12 n43 Aug 2004
This article reports on the differences in democratic education across school types, using the US National Household Education Survey (NHES) of 1999. We replicate the estimation approach of Campbell (1998) and find a strongly positive effect from attendance at Catholic school or private independent schools on community service participation, civic skills, civic confidence, political knowledge and political tolerance. The results are reasonably robust to alternative specifications. We consider the implications of these results for policy. (Contains 7 tables and 1 footnote.)
