Editorial Reviews

Expanding school choice and competition is the single most important action we can take to improve America's schools. Although school choice faces strong opposition from powerful teacher unions and their entrenched political allies, expanding choice via vouchers, charters, and tax credits has repeatedly been shown to improve student achievement, reduce segregation, promote civic values, and facilitate other productive reforms. This eloquent Broadside outlines the case for school choice and shows how it is the most appealing strategy for anyone serious about educational reform.

Format: Paperback
Those in education policy circles who are familiar with Greene's work already know that he has been one of the nation's leading school choice champions for the past couple of decades. In that time, the popularity of school choice has grown tremendously, and Greene's insight has been a driving force in that movement. In this concise and timely primer, Greene lays out the basic arguments for choice and reviews the relevant research. Those interested in school choice will appreciate the way it methodically breaks down the most common arguments surrounding the choice debate, and those who've never considered school choice will find this a useful introduction to the topic.

America used to have more school choice until the government started to make it and the sale of alcohol, student loans and health care their own monopolies. I thought government's role was to protect us from monopolies not force us to into them or to support them. One size does not fit all. Thank God for private schools and parents who homeschool. Someday, God willing, we will regain equal funding and public favor when we begin to treat every government handout as a taxable event and actually start charging those who take advantage of free public education requiring than continuing to demand homeowners to pay real estate taxes to educate their kids.

This topic is one that needs a great deal more discussion that leads to a plan that leads to action.

This book present the issues in a comprehensible way, whether one agrees or disagrees with the authors premise. Mr. Greene engages the reader and then challenges her to rebut the facts.
