Charter Schools: A New Approach to Public Education.
Bierlein, Louann A.
NASSP Bulletin, v79 n572 p12-20 Sep 1995
Charter schools are appealing because they focus on results, subscribe to a democratic philosophy, enhance choice options, permit true decentralization, enable local school boards to emphasize policy, and provide a more market-driven educational system. Charter schools are serving at-risk students and providing unique learning environments, school/community partnerships, and opportunities for teachers. (MLH)
