Do School Markets Serve the Public Interest? More Lessons from England.
Bauch, Patricia A.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v36 n2 p309-23 Apr 2000
Philip Woods and Carl Bagley's "School Choice and Competition" (Routledge 1998) evaluates the viability of allowing parents to choose the school their children attend within a decentralized, market environment. Despite methodological shortcomings, the authors argue effectively for schools' resistance to "competitive" social targeting and/or discriminatory admissions. (Contains 35 references.) (MLH)
