Privatization of Public Education: Panacea or Pandora's Box?
Stevenson, Kenneth R.
School Business Affairs, v65 n11 p14-17 Nov 1999
The drive for privatizing public education comes from two different movements: load-shedding and outsourcing. Districts hope to reduce perceived labor problems, avoid managing "uninteresting" services, save money, and/or buy quick-fix education reform. Privatization of charter schools is becoming big business, but its cost-effectiveness remains unproven. (Contains 18 references.) (MLH)
