Abstract

This paper examines the link between private school enrollment rates and public school expenditures. Using a panel of New York State school districts, models are estimated in which public school spending and private school enrollment rates are endogenously determined. The results indicate the presence of endogeneity. Increases in private school enrollment are not shown to cause decreases in public school per pupil expenditure; however, private school enrollment rates are found to respond to changes in public school expenditure and are sensitive to changes in tuition.
