A Think Twice Review of:

America's Private Public Schools

Think Twice - Mar 24, 2010

Publisher/Think Tank - Thomas B. Fordham Institute

Author(s) -

This report identifies public schools across the U.S. that enroll very few students from low-income families (private public schools) and argues that the existence of these "exclusive" schools justifies the support of publicly funded vouchers to private schools.

Reviewer(s) - John T. Yun, University of California, Santa Barbara

Yun's review concludes that the report's policy arguments are based on tenuous logic, oversimplification and "critical omissions of fact, context and prior research."
