As debate continues across North America over the role of independent schools within public education systems, Cardus released its 4th National Education Survey last fall. The 2016 Cardus Education Survey confirmed findings from 2012 that undermine the stereotype that public school graduates are more civically minded than those from independent schools. Cardus Education research into the impact of religious schools consistently shows that Christian schools make a distinctive contribution to the public good. Cardus is a think tank dedicated to the renewal of North American social architecture. They conduct independent and original research, produce several publications, and regularly stage events with Senior Fellows and interested constituents across Canada and the U.S.
