Why Private School?
Good for StudentsIn a June 2002 report, NCES found that private schools had students who scored higher on standardized tests, had more demanding graduation requirements, and sent more graduates to college than public schools.
Good for FamiliesThe NCES reports that more than three-quarters of private school parents are “very satisfied”with their child’s school compared with less than half of parents whose children were assigned to a public school.
Good for AmericaGaps between minority students and majority students are narrowed in private schools. According to NCES, minority students in private schools are more than twice as likely to enter four-year colleges than their counterparts in public schools.
