What’s the effect of home-schooling and private-schooling on the cost to taxpayers of financing government schools?
A new study  by John Wenders and Andrea Clements, who looked at data from Nevada, finds that home-schooling and private schooling save that state’s taxpayers big money. Here’s a quotation from the executive summary of their study:
Based on 2003 data, the analysis shows an annual potential cost savings to Nevada taxpayers ranging from $24.3 million to $34.6 million attributable to homeschool students, and another $101.9 million to $147 million attributable to private school students, for a combined total of $126.2 million to $181.7 million.
