For-Profit Schools Are Making a Comeback
By Joshua C. Hall
Richard K. Vedder

This article appeared in the Spring 2002 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Despite huge subsidies for public schools and opposition by public-school teachers’ unions, the for-profit education industry is growing dramatically, far outpacing the growth of the U.S. economy. Dissatisfaction with public schools, rising household incomes, and other trends suggest that for-profit schools have a bright future.
