This review is from: Schoolhouses, Courthouses, and Statehouses: Solving the Funding-Achievement Puzzle in America's Public Schools (Hardcover)
Coherence emerges from this thoughtful synthesis of reform initiatives that have come from lawyers, legislators, economists, activists and school district leaders. The author has been both a watchful observer, and in some cases, an involved participant. This gives him the benefit of both the insider's view and the outsider's perspective. The perfect book for anyone who cares to better understand the forces at work when educators, legislators and lawyers wrestle over school funding. The author is free of the ideological blinders that have hindered the debate.
