School Choice and Integration

by

If you want to know the truth about racial segregation in private vs. public schools, and many other myths perpetrated by the teacher union leaders (not the teachers), read Dr. Jay P. Greene’s book, Education Myths.

In my humble opinion, he is by far the best researcher on the topic of school choice in the country. You can also read some of his free stuff and his blog.

The most fascinating research that he wrote about is this.

“A study of seating patterns at lunchroom tables confirms these survey findings that integration in private school classrooms leads to greater cross-racial friendship.

Private schools’ students are almost twice as likely to sit in racially mixed groups in the lunchroom as are public school students.

Private schools’ students are almost twice as likely to sit in racially mixed groups in the lunchroom as are public school students. The evidence, in short, indicates that private schools not only produce more racial mixing but also greater racial tolerance and harmony.”
