Public or Private Education?
Private schools have a reputation for being better and outperforming those run by the states. But new research shows it might be in part by the caliber of kids who get in. A recent study has shown that when students' socioeconomic status is taken into account, math scores have been better at public schools. Isn't that interesting? I'm sure that these results will have an interesting impact on policy makers when making decisions to direct the future of education.
