6 of 30 people found the following review helpful By Elizebeth A. Murray on September 15, 2008
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an interesting treatise on the charter school movement in public education. Many of the performance issues in our school could be improved if the political nature of it was replaced with bipartisan efforts to correct them. Research results can be skewed to support any theory you wish to pursue. In the end, it's all about the students.
