Private Schools More Effective in Making Engaged Citizens

Mainstream media didn’t report this, but Christian Post does. A study published recently in Educational Psychology Review reveals that private schools have a more pronounced impact on students’ civic literacy than their public school counterparts. The study examined the relationship between private schooling and students’ levels of political tolerance, political participation, civic knowledge, and skills, as well as voluntarism and social capital.

Some people think private schools are a threat to our form of government. But that’s not the case; they are actually strengthening and preserving it. Wisconsin’s robust voucher program is allowing more and more students to attend private schools—and that bodes well for us having future citizens who will knowledgeably engage in safeguarding our Republic.
