School Choice May Not Be a Shangri-La
Jeynes, William H.
Religious Education, v112 n5 p517-528 2017
For the past half century, the American public school system has been on the receiving end of a considerable amount of criticism. People of faith have often been at the forefront of expressing that criticism. Attached to their criticism religious people have often called for school choice programs that include faith-based schools as the centerpiece of their ideas for reform. However, this article asserts that these reform ideas are often prepounded with little regard for the possible disadvantages of school choice. The author calls for a more balanced approach to assessing the costs and benefits of potential school choice programs.
