"Charter Schools: A Reference Handbook" looks at what motivates the rise of charter schools, from the frustrations of parents, teachers, and students, to the expectations of community members. This unique work illuminates the political and pedagogical maneuvering as it examines the charter school challenge from multiple perspectives, looks at political realities, offers a critical perspective on key school programs and curriculum design, and provides analyses of race, class, and special education needs as they affect charter schools.

"Charter Schools" critically examines the record and curriculum of charter schools, the laws that govern them, the circumstances that surround them, and how both legislation and politics define and maintain the charter school movement. The coverage concludes with a directory of organizations, associations, and government agencies associated with the movement.
