Self-Governing Schools, Parental Choice, and the Need to Protect the Public Interest
Fiske, Edward B.; Ladd, Helen F.
Phi Delta Kappan, v99 n1 p31-36 Sep 2017

Efforts to promote choice and school self-governance have shown clear benefits for individual students and families, but they have had troubling consequences for the broader public.
