Can Public Schools Learn from Private Schools? Case Studies in the Public and Private Nonprofit Sectors

This work reports on case studies of eight public and eight private schools conducted to determine whether there are any identifiable and transferable private school practices that public schools can adopt in order to improve student outcomes. The evidence from interviews with teachers, administrators, and parents should inform policy debates about school choice, vouchers, public school funding, and other education issues.
