Case studies of eight public and eight private schools were conducted to determine whether there are any identifiable and transferable private school practices that public schools can adopt in order to improve stu-dent outcomes. The evidence from interviews with teachers, adminis-trators, and parents finds that the social, cultural, and economic back-grounds of parents and the com-munity in which a school is located, rather than its public or private charter, tend to determine a school’s practices. The observations from this small sample could have important implications for debates about school choice, vouchers, public school funding, and other education issues.
