Corporatizing Public Education--Problems, Pitfalls, and Questions to Consider
Hall, Horace R.
Mid-Western Educational Researcher, v29 n4 p403-411 2017

The growing trend towards allowing private enterprises to become active players in the development and delivery of classroom learning is assumed to be a "public good." The following commentary provides a cursory look at the impact market encroachment, largely in the form of charters, is having on traditional schools, as well as various social, political and educational issues to consider as market-driven initiatives become increasingly part of the public school domain.
