In this research from 2002, Alex Pomson explores the claim that the recent growth of Jewish day schools in the United States and United Kingdom should be attributed to the declining appeal of public education among minority groups. He assesses whether this claim holds true for day school growth in Toronto specifically, and finds that a number of other patterns led to the increased growth among Jewish schools.
