The Growth of Amish Schools in the United States.
Dewalt, Mark W.
Journal of Research in Rural Education, v17 n2 p122-24 Fall 2001
A 15-year study found that Amish schools have increased, numbering 1,139 in 2000. Where public school funding is on a per-pupil basis, these schools may have a negative effect on rural school district financing. However, an Amish community may increase local farm-related trade and tourism, thereby increasing taxable property and public school funding. (TD)
