The Public Philosophy and Charter Schools: Alberta's Charter Schools.
O'Reilly, Robert R.
International Journal of Educational Reform, v8 n4 p342-51 Oct 1999
Alberta's charter-school legislation responds to certain needs of both liberal and republican ideologies. Alberta's experiment indicates that parents are not very dissatisfied with their local schools. Few minority children are attracted, and charter performance has not been stellar. Schools are chosen for their value systems. (Contains 31 references.) (MLH)
