This chapter replicates and reports, in a truncated fashion, the previous analysis for the City of Philadelphia and for the City and County of Los Angeles. Interestingly, we find that Catholic schools appear to have similarly positive effects in Philadelphia, but not in Los Angeles. We explore several possible reasons for this curious divergence, ranging from immigration to land use patterns. These results suggest fruitful areas of further research.
