Educational "Choice": Its Appeal May Be Illusory.
Astin, Alexander W.
Sociology of Education, v65 n4 p255-60 Oct 1992
Addresses the subject of school choice. Suggests that, unlike a business that grows to accommodate demand, popular schools will become more selective because they are not a profit-making entity. Argues that school choice will only further the stratification of the public and private school system. (DK)
