MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Charter School Experiment"is a balanced and scholarly assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of charter schools, which should inform the current policy debate. Diane Ravitch, research professor of education, New York University and nonresident senior fellow, Brookings Institution
"
Faith in charter schools is skyrocketing. But as Washington tells states to open more charters, does this politically sexy innovation actually work? When their performance flags, why? How might inventive schools actually challenge the status quo? Squarely addressing these questions, this book arrives at just the right time. A must-read for parents, educators, and reform leaders, not to mention White House staffers. Bruce Fuller, professor, education and public policy, University of California, Berkeley
