Taking a cue from David Letterman, a John Locke Foundation expert has compiled a new top 10 list to battle misconceptions about North Carolina’s private schools. That list makes up the bulk of a new Parent’s Guide to private schools.
“This guide is a first step in a larger effort to correct decades-old misconceptions,” said Terry Stoops, JLF Education Policy Analyst. “As Benjamin Franklin knew, better information leads to better decisions. Better information about our state’s private schools can help families make more informed choices about the kind of schooling that best meets their children’s needs.”
The parent’s guide is based on survey results Stoops compiled this spring from 117 of North Carolina’s private schools. “Results of this first-of-its-kind survey should help lay some popular myths to rest.”
