Renewing Schools and Smart Kids: Promises for Democracy.
Clark, Richard W.; Wasley, Patricia A.
Phi Delta Kappan, v80 n8 p590-96 Apr 1999

Charter schools serve limited numbers of students, siphoning off pedagogical reform energies that would benefit kids left behind. Rigor and innovation must be connected. (MLH)
