GAO Finds No Gains in Privately Run Public Schools
The General Accounting Office (GAO) in a recent report says
most privately run public schools did not perform better than publicly run schools and in some cases fared worse. Private,
for-profit companies manage less than one percent of U.S. public schools (about 400).
