Editorial Reviews

Review

''The public and private sectors often interact in an uneasy and unstable dance of cooperation, but education has come later to the dance hall than other areas of public policy. There is much we still need to learn, and this broad and diverse collection provides an excellent place to start.'' --Jeff Henig, Chair, Department of Education Policy and Social Analysis, Teachers College, Columbia University

''No subject in education reform is more polarizing than the role of for-profit enterprises. But as Hess and Horn demonstrate in this volume of remarkably objective analyses, both the 'fors' and the 'antis' have the issue all wrong. Business has important roles to play, but specifying them takes the kind of nuanced thinking that ideologues hate. Policymakers would do well to read this engaging volume and tune out the noise that has obscured serious debate.'' --John Chubb, Interim CEO, Education Sector
