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.

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.

This book should not even rate one star. Greene's idea would destroy the public schools that serve 90% of our kids; fragment the student population along religious, class, ethnic, ideological, ability level and other lines; violate every taxpayer's religious liberty by compelling them to pay for religious institutions; increase education costs while lowering quality. -- Edd Doerr (arlinc.org)

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.
