Summary

This paper outlines reasons for the apparent discrepancy between public- and private-school cost per student. The paper compares one public and one private school system in Palm Beach, Florida--Palm Beach County Schools and Lake Worth Christian Schools. It argues that public schools are more expensive because of the many categories of student populations that are eligible for special financial assistance. The following variables that affect public schools are also discussed: building and capital expenditures; foreign-language students; vocational-technical schools and equipment; an unstable public school population; transportation costs; dropout-prevention programs, and other indirect costs. Recommendations to make public-school finance more cost-effective include: (1) reduce the size of larger school districts; (2) return financing and buildings to the local government structure; (3) implement testing/grading procedures based on cognitive profiles, learning-style inventories, and mastery learning; (4) establish a moral/ethical vision; and (5) implement an individualized approach to teaching and learning.
