Beschreibung

Can charter schools -- independently operated public schools of choice -- save public education? This radical question has unleashed a flood of opinions from Americans struggling with the contentious challenges of education reform. In this important new book, prominent education analysts Chester Finn, Bruno Manno, and Gregg Vanourek offer the richest data available on the successes and failures of this exciting but controversial approach to education reform. After studying one hundred schools and analyzing the most current data, they have compiled today's most authoritative explanation and appraisal of the charter phenomenon. Fact-filled, clear-eyed, and hard-hitting, this is the book for anyone concerned about public education and interested in the role of charter schools in its renewal.
