Summary [Authors conclude] that there's very little difference between public schools and their nearby private counterparts. Inner-city private schools, most of which are Catholic, suffer from the same problems neighboring public schools have, including large class sizes, unqualified teachers, outdated curricula, lack of parental involvement, and stressful family and community circumstances.--From publisher description
