Inside Charter Schools
The Paradox of Radical DecentralizationeBook - 2000
Deepening disaffection with conventional public schools has inspired flight to private schools, home schooling and new alternatives, such as charter schools. Barely a decade old, the charter school movement has attracted a colourful band of supporters, from presidential candidates, to ethnic activists, to the religious Right. At present there are about 1,700 charter schools, with total enrollment estimated to reach one million early in the century. Yet, until now, little has been known about the inner workings of these small, inventive schools that rely on public money but are largely independent of local school boards.
