Breaking Away. An "Education Week" Special Report.
Education Week, v15 n13 Suppl Nov 29 1995
Four articles from this special report examine the charter school movement and whether it has the staying power to change American schooling. The articles are: (1) "Declarations of Independence" (Mark Walsh), which discusses the Boston Renaissance and Marblehead charter schools in Massachusetts, among others; (2) "Laws of the Land" (Drew Lindsay), which provides a brief overview of the history of education reform and some state laws; (3) "American Visionaries" (Lonnie Harp), which compares the charter school movement in Arizona to other states efforts and examines one former teacher's charter-application process; and (4) Charter School Resources, organizations which can provide more information, including on-line sources, some for purchase and some free of charge.
