School choice, privatisation and marketisation have been a part of education policy for some time in Australia. While some people believe private schooling offers a 'better education', others claim that the benefits to students are not so clear and that other factors shape learning outcomes (see: http://www.smh.com.au/national/education/private-schools-no-guarantee-of-higher-naplan-scores-study-finds XXXXXXXXXX2vf63.html). Conduct your own investigation into the link between private schools and educational performance using the My School website to compare schools. Your research question is: Is there a clear link between private or selective schooling and high academic results, or are there other factors at play? Write your investigation into a 1800 word report that uses at least 7 readings from topics 1-5. Your report must include: an introduction; a presentation of your data (e.g. write paragraphs, tables and/or graphs); and a discussion of your findings. You may include other sub-headings.
