Very Good : A book that does not look new and has been read but is in excellent condition. The federal government is devoting millions of dollars to charter and voucher programs that currently require parents to abandon regular public schools. The School Choice Hoax: Fixing America's Schools exposes the misleading hyperbole that has been driving the school choice movement and shows how charter schools can become more effective and useful to public school districts.
Corwin and Schneider provide an unusual blend of academic and practical knowledge derived from long careers careers as a sociologist and former Deputy Executive Director of the American Association of School Administrators.
They form conclusions from years of research and present information that is helpful to parents faced with the prospect of making school choice work. The School Choice Hoax is packed with observations about school choice that will inform parents, politicians, and other community members about the advantages and disadvantages of choice schools. As the debate about the effects of school choice policies rages on, Corwin and Schneider offer a pragmatist's solution to the 'school choice hoax'.
These two Washington insiders argue that the public has been deceived by false promises that suggest the nation's worst schools will be fixed by school choice. They point to evidence that suggests the choice movement has not, and cannot, fix U. Rather than reject school choice altogether, the authors argue for vouchers and charter schools two popular and contentious forms of choice to be combined into an integrated approach.
This approach, which would put choice schools under the supervision of districts, would draw on the lessons learned from older reforms that have demonstrated success: the small schools initiatives, school-based management, magnets, networks of schools, and specialized alternative schools.
