Wealth—Not Enrollment in Private School—Increases Student Achievement, According to New Study

Steven Singer

Students enrolled in private schools often get good grades and high test scores.

And there’s a reason for that – they’re from wealthier families.

"If we really want to help our children, the solution is not increased privatization. It is increased funding and support for anti-poverty programs, teachers and a robust public school system."

There is little will for advancing all citizens in the majority in the current government, advancing the money hoarders instead. The deck is stacked, the court is loaded. Change must come from willing individuals by voting, especially with feet and money, with not agreeing to participate in evil. Be good, oh and stop telling oneself the lie that things cannot change for the better.

The deck is stacked in the elections also, the 1% have covered all the bases. Until we discard the programable voting machines we won’t see a great change. A win is possible by turning out great numbers in red districts, but it’s got to be big enough so that flipping the votes would be obvious.

To be sure, fixing election fraud is imperative, especially switching back to paper ballots.

This study was very lacking in several things, or at least what was reported. How much wealth was needed to produce the best scores and what was the gain per dollar increase? Was there any study of outliers as to why some poor kids are A students and some wealthy kids are C and D students?
