The history of education in the State of Wisconsin bears witness to the growth and development of both public and nonpublic schools in the state. Many of the laws pertaining to schools have influenced the relationship between these schools. The essence of such a relationship lies in their educational philosophies and these needed to be studied. This paper is the result of that study. The historical background and the legal setting of the interrelationship were first established. Then four aspects of the educational philosophies of public and non-public schools were examined: objectives, curriculum, structure and methodology. The interrelationship is primarily the result of the commonalities found in those aspects of the educational philosophies. A. Theory-practice model is provided in the paper as a proposed resolution of the differences found.
