Private Schooling in the U.S.: Expenditures, Supply, and Policy Implications
Policy Brief - Aug 18, 2009
Author(s) - Bruce D. Baker Rutgers University
This policy brief makes the case for schools across the country to put an end to policies that cast off students into unchallenging, low-track classrooms. The authors recommend a clear process for the phasing out of curricular stratification in grades K-10, beginning with the lowest track and granting meaningful access to AP and IB courses to all students. The brief includes model statutory language to implement its recommendations.
