Abstract: This study is designed to determine the changes that have occurred in nonpublic education in North Carolina since the time of an earlier study conducted by Lewis Franklin in 1975. Pertinent information was secured by tracing the development of nonpublic education in America and specifically in North Carolina, examining federal court decisions regarding desegregation and busing, examining North Carolina statutes pertaining to nonpublic education, and conducting a survey of nonpublic schools in North Carolina. A questionnaire similar to the one used by Franklin was prepared to address the following topics: the origin of nonpublic schools, organizational structure, school facilities, outside relations to local and state officials, and transportation. This questionnaire was mailed to 419 nonpublic schools, of which 331—nearly 79 percent—responded.
