If school choice policy is to improve the American education landscape, careful thought must be put in to understand how it can expand existing high quality schools and create new high quality schools to serve more children. New and Better Schools attacks this problem from the perspective of both researchers and practitioners, documenting the hurdles entrepreneurial school leaders face and offering a way forward.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In New and Better Schools: The Supply Side of School Choice, Michael McShane and his team of policy experts thoroughly dissect the challenges and opportunities associated with growing the number of quality private schools in America. The road map they provide would, without question, improve the educational outcomes for countless numbers of kids. Our charge is to rally around this approach and get it done! -- Kevin P. Chavous, executive counsel, American Federation for Children
While the growth in support for school choice nationwide is evidenced by the considerable activity in state legislatures over the past few years -- creating nearly three million voucher or tax-credit scholarships -- we are a far cry from meeting the demand with only 11% of those opportunities being put to use by students. Clearly there's a need to address the educational marketplace and McShane et al offer outstanding evidence and practical solutions for scaling up in New and Better Schools: The Supply Side of School Choice. Questions about demography, scale, capital (both human and financial), and the ever-present regulatory creep are taken to task by this esteemed cast of researchers and practitioners. -- Kara Kerwin, president, The Center for Education Reform
Twenty-five years on from the first modern voucher program in Milwaukee, the private school choice movement is facing a daunting task once only dreamt of: how to build and sustain new private schools. With the release of The Supply Side of School Choice, edited by Michael McShane, we now have a primer that both highlights the serious supply side challenges facing private schools and points to the way forward for the school choice movement as a whole. -- Robert Enlow, president and CEO, Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice
