Comparing Private and Public Education

I was listening to your Economic Update podcast from February 17th, when I heard you discussing a study which revealed that Public Education, when adjusted for demographics, was more beneficial than Private education. When I searched for the study, (https://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/pubs/studies/2006461.asp) I found that it seems to Be just the opposite. According to that report, Private schools in general performed better than Public schools. I was wondering which source you used to make this claim, because as a student, knowing what education is best for me is something I'd like to be knowledgeable about. It's a quick read, but it would help to get your opinion.

    I have seen this before, private schools can pick and choose students they think will do well, and find resons for excluding anyone else, thus they are left to public schools.
