Christian Week covers the Cardus education survey.
HAMILTON, ON—Canadian based think-tank Cardus is embarking on a major research study looking at the effect a private Christian education has on Canadian students.
Ray Pennings, director of research for Cardus, says it will be the largest known study of its type.
"We're hoping to create a conversation about education and the possible role that faith-based schools play in the public delivery of education," Pennings says.
"We strongly believe that Christian schools not only serve those who attend them but also the public and society as a whole. It seemed to us that good stewardship required us to examine what outcomes we are achieving from this investment and if there were things we might learn to help us do this better."
