Educational Privatization in France and the United States

The purpose of this collaborative project would be to analyze the similarities and differences regarding educational privatization in France and the United States, with particular attention to the evolution and impact of two aspects: first, public funding for private schooling ; and second, homeschooling. France and the United States differ substantially in how they provide public funding for private schooling, how they determine school as well as student eligibility, and how they hold schools accountable. As public funding of private schooling stands to grow substantially in the United States following the June 30, 2020, Supreme Court decision of Espinoza v. Montana Department of Education, this comparative analysis should be of special interest to scholars and policymakers alike. The countries likewise differ substantially in how they fund and monitor homeschooling, a sector growing around the globe and thus meriting significant study.
