The relationship between public and private schooling and anti-Semitism

"No previous research has directly examined the relationship between attending a public or private school as a child and people’s attitudes toward Jews when they become adults," Jay P. Greene and Ian Kingsbury write.
This article sheds new light on this issue by using a large, nationally representative survey of over 1,500 adults in the United States to see how childhood schooling is related to adult anti-Semitism. It finds that even after controlling for a variety of background characteristics, people who attended private schools exhibit more positive attitudes toward Jews than those who attended public schools.
