"A spectacular book―needs to be published yesterday."
―Deborah Meier, New York University
“Fabricant and Fine have fearlessly peered behind the Waiting for Superman hype. Everyone interested in the future of American education needs to read this insightful analysis.”
―Juan Gonzalez, New York Daily News columnist and co-host of Democracy Now!
“A compelling analysis of the promise, politics, and problems of charter schools. The authors go well beyond a defense of the status quo in offering a progressive agenda to more fully realize education's democratic ideals."
―Gary Rhoades, Professor of Higher Education, University of Arizona
“Fabricant and Fine present an invaluably clear, historically textured, and carefully argued account of the charter school idea and its transformation from progressive, teacher-driven experiment to corporate, neoliberal edge of the wedge against public education and the public sector writ large.”
―Adolph Reed, Jr., Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania
“The authors help us see that the emperor has no clothes when one truthfully examines the entire heavily funded charter school movement and the emerging privatization of public education. If you think it does not or will not affect you, please read this revealing book.”
―Barbara Fields, Executive Board Member of Black Educator Alliance of Massachusetts and Former Senior Officer, Office of Equity, Boston Public Schools
