The CUNY Institute for Education Policy will hold a conference, “Non-Public School Graduates in Civil Society: Release of Data” on September 10 at 5:30pm at the Roosevelt House in New York City:
Do private schools serve the public good, or private interests? Do they train for democratic citizenship, or do they further divide an already pluralistic society? A recent research project by Cardus, a non-aligned Canadian thinktank, surveyed a nationally representative sample of 23-39 year-old Americans from across major school sectors and sought to analyze school sector impact upon adult behavior in civic engagement, academic achievement, and religious formation. Join us for a critical examination of just-released data on non-public and public school graduates from the Cardus Religious Schools Initiative at Notre Dame University.
